Following a protest by the opposition BJP, the second day of the winter session of the Jharkhand Assembly witnessed a ruckus. The Speaker adjourned the session till tomorrow - December 21.

Even before the second day of the winter session began, BJP MLAs were found sitting on dharna outside on several charges including rising crime- murder and ‘love jihad’.

These protesting BJP MLAs were Randhir Singh, Neera Yadav, Samri Lal, Amit Mandal, Shashi Bhusan Nehta and Dhullu Mahto. They were raiding anti- Hemant Soren government and its employment policy was dismissed by the Jharkhand High Court.

“The Soren government is playing with the fate of unemployed youths of the state”, said Randhir Singh as his party colleagues yelled- “ Shame, Shame … the maker of fake employment policy.”

Today, a delegation of the ruling coalition parties - Congress, JMM and RJD- led by CM Hemant Soren is scheduled to meet Governor Ramesh Bais to make a plea to recommend the earlier Assembly-approved domicile policy draft linked with 1932 Khatiyan to the President of India to amend the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution.

The opposition BJP which described it as a “deliberately planned move to fool” the people have decided to keep themselves away from the ruling parties’ “ political move.”
