Ranchi: Political storm is Jharkhand is turning violent for the upcoming Rajya Sabha election. While on one hand the churning is going on in the name of Raghuvar Das from the NDA side, on the other hand, the tussle between the constituents JMM and the Congress in the present government seems to be Levelling up. The JMM, which has taken a tough stand, is in no mood to support its ally Congress at all in the forth coming election. Perhaps this is the reason that despite the announcement of the names of the candidates by the Congress, the JMM is planning to declare a candidate. Brainstorming continues on the name of Hemant Soren’s wife Kalpana Soren and party’s general secretary Supriyo Bhattacharya as a candidate. However, this time the Congress has become adamant on its insistence. Key members of Jharkhand Congress have been called on by Congress President Sonia Gandhi to Delhi. After the news of JMM fielding candidates in the Rajya Sabha elections, the Congress high command in-charge of Jharkhand Avinash Pandey, leader of the Congress Legislature Party, Alamgir Alam, State President Rajesh Thakur, the four working presidents, Jaleshwar Mahto, Shahzada Anwar, Geeta Koda and Bandhu Tirkey and other members have been called to Delhi.
According to sources, a meeting of the JMM Legislature Party has been called on May 28.
