Ranchi: Former chief minister and leader of the opposition Hemant Soren has congratulated Arvind Kejriwal of securing landslide victory in Delhi assembly election.
He said that the BJP must take lessons from poll drubbing as government cannot function through dictatorship.
Addressing media persons at his residence today Hemant Soren said that Kejriwal has put a break on one-upmanship in democracy by routing the BJP in the election.
People of Jharkhand are taking note of BJP’s game plan to poach MLAs from opposition parties to gain supremacy in the assembly, he said, adding it was a day of victory for democracy as shown in poll results in Delhi. Elaborating on the cause of BJP’s defeat Soren said that the BJPP has lost the election as it had sidelined the committed party workers.
The BJP had selected a candidate from opposition party for the post of chief minister. The BJP had tried to impose anti-people land acquisition ordinance on people which had resulted in party’s defeat, he said.
Soren said that BJP was trying to snatch land from people to give it to the corporate houses.
The JMM would intensify agitation against such anti-people ordinances, he said. Criticizing the BJP Hemant
Soren said that the BJP is trying to woo legislators from opposition parties in Jharkhand.
Such activities are vitiating the political atmosphere in Jharhkand while the present government is looking oblivious
to deteriorating law and order scenario.
“Everyone in the State including traders or the commoners has gone fed-up with the current state of affairs in Jharkhand.
I too was the chief minister but the situation had not deteriorated to this level. The government should be sensitive to the wishes and aspirations of the people,” Hemant Soren said. Hemant Soren went on to add that JMM was not opposed to development.
Answering a query Soren said that the State assembly and secretariat are running on rented buildings. If any building is lying vacant it should be utilized for administrative purposes.
The BJP did not get clear majority except in Haryana. Now in Delhi it has been completely routed, Soren commented.
