Elections in Jharkhand

The Jharkhand  Assembly Elections were seen as a contest between three forces: The Indian National Congress (INC), The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and its major ally Janata Dal{United}, and the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM). The poll result was a shock for the incumbent BJP-JD{U} Alliance as they could muster only a quarter of the state assembly's 81 seats. . The JMM emerged as a formidable force and finally turned out to be the kingmaker. The election turned out to be a stalemate as many expected because no major party or group was able to come even close of the 42-seat majority.

The failure of the incumbent BJP-JD{U} government was really shocking considering its dismal performance. The BJP has maintained strong presence in the states of Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, and Uttarakhand, which were formed during the rule of the BJP-led NDA (National Democratic Alliance) government at the center in 2000. The BJP seems to bank on this fact and continues to support the creation of smaller states where there is popular demand.
