Ranchi: Three MLAs who faced corruption
charges during their ministerial terms in Jharkhand could
"wash off their sins by giving unconditional support to a new
government" in the state.

"They were in thick of things during a tumultuous period
(from 2005 onwards). Now they have an opportunity to wash off their sins by working in the interest of the people and the
state. I don`t think it is bad, if one seeks to wash-off
their sins. Sin should be hated, not sinners. But they should
come forward with unconditional support," JVM-P president
Babulal Marandi said, when asked if he would seek their
support.

Jharkhand Party`s Enos Ekka and Harinarayan Rai
(Independent) retained their seats while contesting from
judicial custody. They were in jail for last three months in
connection with a disproportionate assets case.

Jharkhand Janadhikar Party leader and former minister
Bandhu Tirkey also retained Mandar seat. Vigilance Department had raided his residence twice and interrogated him in a separate DA case.

While Ekka and Rai were in all the four governments from
2005, Tirkey was in the Madhu Koda and Shibu Soren cabinets.
