Former Maoists file nominations on RJD, JMM tickets
Medininagar: Two former Maoists,
now in Latehar jail, filed their nomination papers for the
Jharkhand assembly elections on RJD and JMM tickets today.
Keshwar Yadav and Jugal Pal, the self-styled zonal
commanders of CPI(Maoist), were arrested a couple of years ago
and lodged in Latehar jail.
While RJD allotted a ticket to Yadav for Panki
constituency, JMM has fielded Pal from Bishrampur seat.
Both the seats are in Palamu district.
The duo were brought amid tight security here for filing
their nominations, official sources said.
In the May Lok Sabha elections, JMM had fielded another
former Maoist, Kameshwar Baitha, who won from Palamau. He is
now lodged in Garwah jail.
