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.
