    On Monday (December 2), Union Home Minister Amit Shah had stressed that all infiltrators will be expelled from the country before 2024 Lok Sabha election, reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government to implement National Register of Citizens (NRC) across the country. Shah made the statement while addressing a public rally in West Singhbhum in Jharkhand ahead of the Assembly election in the state.

    In the 2014 assembly elections, the JMM, Congress and the Jharkhand Vikas Morcha had formed an alliance. However, the JVM has moved away this time. The Congress-JMM have aligned with the RJD this time. In the 2014 Assembly elections, the BJP had won 37 seats, its then alliance partner, All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU) five, while the JMM got 19, the Congress took six, and the JVM had eight. The six remaining seats were won by other parties. The BJP and the AJSU are contesting separately this time.
