Ranchi, February 2: Jharkhand chief minister and JMM executive president Hemant Soren arrived along with party supremo Shibu Soren to attend Jharkhand Diwas Program at Dumka on Thursday marking 44th year of the party formation.
The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) is all set to demonstrate its political might in its annual Jharkhand Diwas programme on Thursday when the party patriarch Shibu Soren will address the midnight rally at the historical Gandhi Maidan to be attended by thousands of supporters from across the Santhal Pargana.
Meanwhile, Hemant Soren on his arrival at his official house at Khijuria listened to the grievances of locals along with Dumka deputy commissioner Ravishankar Shukla.
The chief minister took all the written complaints and assured that their problems would be sorted out and that government top priority is to solve problems.
Meanwhile, the event will be attended by the senior JMM leaders, cabinet colleagues from the party, MPs, and MLAs.
However, many assume special significance this time with elections scheduled next year and few leaders of the party openly voicing dissent in the form of Borio MLA Lobin Hembrom.
The party functionaries have left no stone unturned to make the event a gala one with the entire sub-capital town decked up with dozens of welcome gates which have been named after martyrs and late party leaders, party flags and festoons to welcome around fifty thousand people, including women and children mostly belonging to the tribal community.
Apart from hundreds of buses being hired by the party to ferry supporters, party leaders and aspiring party candidates too were seen leading the convoy of four-wheelers carrying their supporters to reach the divisional headquarters to demonstrate their might in respective areas of their workplaces.
Hemant Soren and Shibu Soren are likely to highlight the works of the current government and blame the BJP-led central government for what they say to attempt to destabilise it by engaging different central agencies and disturbing them in implementing 1932 Khatiyani rule.
Party leaders, including Dumka MLA Basant Soren and others led the party supporters from the local SP College ground in the form of a procession to reach the venue by travelling through the city who carried traditional weapons amidst the beats of traditional drums.
