Gamharia, Aug 19: The members of Jharkhand mukti Morcha (JMM) today burnt the effigies of BJP parliamentarian PN Singh and the party�s MLA Raj Sinha in protest against their alleged insult to the martyrs of Jharkhand revolution. The JMM members shouted slogans against the MP and MLA in Gamharia today while burning their effigies.
The JMM district vice president Amrit Mahto remarked, �The BJP MP and MLA are not being able to digest the honour bestowed on Shahid Nirmal Mahto. That is the reason why the renaming of the Pataliputra Medical College in Nirmal Mahto�s name as a tribute to the martyr by state Chief Minister Hemant Soren has filled PN Singh and Raj Sinha with rancor. I wish to warm them against indulging in dirty politics in the names of Nirmal Mahto and other Shahids or else they will have to face violent protests everywhere in Jharkhand.� He thanked Chief Minister Hemant Soren for the honour shown by him to martyr Nirmal Mahto.
The JMM district vice president claimed that all the MPs and MLAs elected from Jharkhand had won on the strength of martyrs like Nirmal Mahto and others. Others present at the protest rally included district president Shubhendu Mahto, Block president Jagdish Mahto, Dev Anand Mahto, Niranjan Mahto, Anil Soren, mangal Majhi, Basant Mahto, Raju Mahto, Debasish Pradhan and Devlal Mahto.
