After the outstanding victory of Hemant Soren’s Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, his younger brother Basant Soren on Tuesday said that the JMM-led alliance will form the government in two-three days.

"As the people's mandate is with us, we are forming the government in 2-3 days," Basant told media reporters.

On being asked if the government will be formed by the opposition alliance similar to Maharashtra, he said: "Maharashtra scenario was completely different from here."

 

Lambasting the former Bharatiya Janata Party government led by Raghubar Das in the state, he said: "People had decided what they have thought. Citizens had decided to remove the corrupted and arrogant government. They (BJP) do development by just saying and promising and we bring development by working on the ground."

He further said that if the party asks him to contest elections in the near future then he will surely fight.

"Basant Soren is here with you all... with the public. In the future, if leadership wants me to contest the election then I will surely fight," Basant replied on being asked about his further role in the party.

Hemant Soren won by a margin of 13,188 votes from the Dumka seat and from the Barhait assembly constituency by a margin of 25,740 votes.

JMM-led alliance, which includes Congress and RJD, on Monday won an absolute majority in the Jharkhand elections by winning 47 seats in 81-member assembly. The alliance defeated the BJP which won 25 seats.
