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.
