Ranchi: The Election Commission has
recognised the AJSU Party as a state-level party, a senior
party leader said here on Monday.

"We have received a letter from the EC to this
effect, saying the Ajsu Party has fulfilled the criteria for
recognition as a state-level party," party vice-president
Praveen Prabhakar told reporters quoting the letter.

The AJSU Party began its journey as a student body
known as All Jharkhand Students Union in the then undivided
Bihar which fought for a separate Jharkhand state.

It has five MLAs in the current house with three
of them, including its President Sudesh Mahto, in the Shibu
Soren cabinet.
