AJSU focuses on door-to-door campaigning
Ranchi, February 23: Chief minister Hemant Soren on Thursday struck a sentimental chord when he sought support of the electorate from his native soil – Ramgarh – to give a befitting reply to the conspirators.
Addressing a rally at Chittarpur block in Ramgarh, said, said Mamta Devi who fought for the rights of local people is paying a price and deserves all support from the people she defended. “I am sure that Ramgarh would give befitting reply to the conspirators who separated a newborn from the lap of his mother. It is a time to stand for justice. We have four by-polls and will win this too,” Soren said.
Significantly, Congress candidate Bajrang Mahto, husband of convicted former MLA Mamta Devi is being supported by JMM, RJD and Left Parties in the by-polls which was necessitated after Mamata Devi was convicted and sentenced to jail.
Soren had been in Ramgarh since Wednesday after returning from Chennai where he had gone with his father Shibu Soren for a regular health check-up.
Soren charged BJP and Ajsu for neglecting women in the state.
“Earlier, only 3000 women who had been widowed used to get pension but now 15,000 women are getting widow pension. BJP and Ajsu only know to use money power to win election,” alleged Soren.
“People’s court is the highest court in democracy and it is the people who can deliver rightful justice by supporting her husband Bajrang Mahto in the election,” Soren said. He squarely blamed the previous government for hatching a conspiracy against the “vocal” Congress leader to silence her.
Soren did not spare the BJP and lodged a scathing attack on the Centre accusing it of shielding corrupt people and financial malpractices. Without taking names, he asked the people to be aware of keeping money in banks. “Your money deposited with banks is not safe in this government as the bank may sink any day. You should keep your money buried,” he said.
Soren, who held his first rally in Gola on February 19, held another rally in Dulmi on Wednesday. The CM, whose roots lie in Gola’s Nemra village, will hold a rally at Ramgarh, Congress workers here said.
With campaigning for the Ramgarh byelection entering its final leg, political parties from the ruling coalition and the opposition have intensified their campaigning in all six blocks of the district.
Ajsu-P, which is hoping to regain the seat from Congress, has stepped up its door-to-door campaigns, roadshows and public meetings. The party, which is a part of the BJP-led NDA, has taken up the issues of corruption, rising crime graph in the state, and the failure of the Hemant Soren-led coalition government in providing jobs to the state’s youths.
Besides highlighting the failures of the Soren government, Ajsu-P candidate Sunita Choudhary and her star campaigners, including Sudesh Mahto, are highlighting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s exploits on the world stage to garner support.
