Ranchi: JMM on Tuesday alleged that its leader
and Jharkhand Deputy Chief Minister Hemant Soren was not
provided security while campaigning for his party candidate in
Kadua Assembly constituency in Bihar`s Katihar district.
"Our leader and Deputy CM Hemant Soren addressed the
meeting without any security in the afternoon. The Katihar
district administration has not even provided a home guard
even after Soren`s secretary had written to the district
magistrate about his visit in advance," JMM leader Subhas
Kumar told newsmen soon after reaching Ranchi.
"We hope the Bihar government makes necessary security
arrangements next time, at least for the sake of protocol," he
added.

The JMM has nominated 62 candidates for the Bihar
Assembly elections.
