Jamshedpur (Jharkhand): Senior JMM leader
and former Deputy Chief Minister Sudhir Mahto on Sunday criticised
the party leadership for allotting Rajya Sabha ticket to a
person who is not a party member.
"It is not the first time that JMM put up candidate
from outside the party or the state even having bitter
experience," he said in a press conference here.
The JMM Rajya Sabha candidate Sanjib Kumar is a
Supreme Court lawyer.
"We should have learnt a lesson from Chandigarh-based
industrialist K D Singh who won Rajya Sabha seat on JMM ticket
but switched to Trinamool Congress within six months," Mahto
"I will take up the issue in the central and executive
committee meeting of the party," he said.
