Jharkhand Lok Sabha Polls Isolated by JMM Sita Soren joins BJP

New Delhi: Shortly after resigning from the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Sita Soren officially joined the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) today. In her resignation letter written, Sita Soren stated that since her husband's demise, she and her family have faced continuous disrespect. 

A three-time MLA from Jama, Sita Soren is also the spouse of the late Durga Soren, the elder brother of the former Chief Minister, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 39.

Her resignation comes a fortnight after the Supreme Court overturned a 1998 judgement – in a case where Shibu Soren was an accused – saying that MPs and MLAs who take bribes to vote or speak in a certain manner in the House are not immune from prosecution. She is accused of accepting bribe from an independent candidate in the 2012 Rajya Sabha elections.

JMM Rajya Sabha MP Mahua Maji termed Sita Soren’s resignation as “shocking” and urged her to reconsider the decision.

“I would like to ask why only Kalpana Soren, who is not even an MLA and has no political experience. Under what circumstances her name is doing the rounds as the next chief minister when there are so many senior leaders in the party,” Sita Soren said after Hemant Soren's arrest.

“If they want to elect from the family, I am the seniormost and have been an MLA for around 14 years,” she added.

Jharkhand will go to polls in four phases from May 13 to June 1. The results will be declared on June 4.
