Ranchi: JVM (P) president Babulal Marandi for the first time acknowledged that party�s poll prospect dwindled after party legislators had left the party ahead of assembly election.
As former legislators have switched to other parties the JVM (M) faced a huge setback, he said.
The former chief minister Marandi said, �There was indeed a crisis of faith and the party could not come out from it. As a result of it party�s poll prospect diminished at Giridih district.
But despite the setback the party members worked hard and managed to secure more than a lakh votes at Giridih. The masses have given a verdict to the party to sit in the opposition.
The JVM (P) respect people�s verdict and we will play the role of a constructive opposition in the assembly.� Marandi said.
Answering a question Marandi said that the JVM (P) would not join the government in any circumstances.
