Jamshedpur: The Jharkhand People's Party (JPP) would contest all the parliamentary and assembly seats in state on its own strength in the coming polls.

A decision to this effect was taken at the party's Central Committee meeting held here on Wednesday, said Surya Singh Besra, President of JPP.

At the meeting the party decided to field its candidate in all the 14 parliamentary seats and 81 Assembly constituency in Jharkhand in the 2014 elections.

Besides, the JPP also decided to contest six parliamentary seats in tribal-dominated districts-Purulia, Midnipore, Bankura- in West Bengal and eight Lok Sabha seats in Odisha including in Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Sundergarh districts, JPP leader said.

Taking a leaf out of Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi, Besra said JPP would conduct survey and identify Jharkhandi activists, who sacrificed their lives for separate Jharkhand state movement, with clean image.
