Implement Sachar Committee report in Jharkhand: Tirkey

Ranchi: The lone MLA of Jharkhand Janadhikar
Manch, Bandhu Tirkey, who voted in favour of Chief Minister
Shibu Soren in the floor test, today asked the state
government to implement the Sachar Committee report in toto.

"I have faith in Guruji (Soren), who has struggled for
Jharkhand for 40 years," Tirkey said in his brief speech in
the assembly.

Tirkey, who spearheaded the pro-domicile agitation in
2003, also urged the government to introduce "local policy"
after discussions with coalition partners.

A policy for protecting mineral resources of the state,
early panchayat elections and irrigation facilities for
farmers and quick disposal of corruption cases filed in the
last one year were also urged by him.

Tirkey is facing a disproportionate assets case, which is
being probed by the state Vigilance Bureau, which conducted
raids in his residential premises last year.
