BJP Banks on New Faces To Retain Jharkhand Seats
The BJP has handled new faces in three voting public - Koderma, Ranchi, and Khunti - and held Union clergyman Jayant Sinha in the Hazaribagh situate setting off to the surveys.
Koderma has been spoken to multiple times by the BJP in the Lok Sabha. Notwithstanding as far back as Jharkhand's first CM Babulal Marandi quit the BJP in 2006 and framed the JVM-P, the saffron party has won the seat just once, in 2014, when Ravindra Kumar Rai developed triumphantly.
This time, BJP has supplanted Rai with RJD turncoat Annapurna Devi. In Ranchi, BJP has denied a ticket to MP Ram Tahal Choudhary, however, the 77-year-old five-term MP is challenging as an autonomous. BJP's new face Sanjay Seth faces the undertaking of preventing party cast a ballot from going to Choudhary. Ex-Union minister Subodh Kant Sahay is the Congress hopeful.
In Khunti, BJP has sidelinedKariya Munda and given the ticket to ex-CM Arjun Munda, however Christian and inborn voters may give Congress an edge. In Hazaribagh, the battle is between BJP's Sinha and two-term CPI MP Bhuneshwar Prasad Mehta. The Left needed help from Mahagathbandhan yet didn't get it.
