Ranchi: The AJSU party on Friday said the victory of its candidate from the Hatia assembly seat was an indication towards a new political re-alignment in the ‘distant future’ and reflected that the party was above religion, caste and languages.
The win by our candidate Navin Jaiswal signals that Jharkhand is moving towards a new political re-alignment in the distant future.... The votes also suggest that AJSU party is above religion, language and caste affiliations? AJSU party president Praveen Prabhakar said here.
Both village and town voters of Hatia accepted our leader, Deputy Chief Minister Sudesh Mahto, who wants all round development of the state and take forward the identity of Jharkhand, Prabhakar added.
He, however, ruled out any threat to the Arjun Munda-led government following the defeat of BJP candidate by junior ally, Ajsu.
No, there is no threat to the government, as we all want it to run the government in the interest of the people and the progress of the state, he added.
BJP’s Ramji Lal Sharda finished third in the bypoll for the Hatia seat as Ajsu’s Navin Jaiswal won it by over 11,000 votes.
Prabhakar said the party was preparing to contest all the 81 seats in the next assembly elections, scheduled in 2014.
