On the eve of the Rajya Sabha by poll,JMM Acting President Hemant Soren today presided over a meeting with leaders and representatives of his party and allies in Ranchi.
All of them vowed to vote for the JMM candidate Alamgir Alam against the BJP candidate MJ Akbar.
However,since the majority of over 44 out of total 82 MLAs belonged to the BJP,the victory of Akbar was almost inevitable.
