Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma Appointed as Election In-Charges for Jharkhand Assembly Polls

Guwahati, 17th June: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan have been appointed as the party’s election in-charges for the forthcoming Jharkhand Assembly elections. The announcement comes as the state prepares for polls expected to be held around November-December this year to elect 81 members of the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly.

In addition, Telangana MP G Kishan Reddy has been designated as the BJP’s election in-charge for the Jammu & Kashmir Assembly polls, scheduled for September-November this year to elect 90 members of the J&K Legislative Assembly.

The BJP faced significant challenges in the recent Lok Sabha polls, particularly in Jharkhand’s five tribal constituencies—Khunti, Singhbhum, Lohardaga, Rajmahal, and Dumka. Despite dominating these regions in the past three elections, the ruling Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM)-led alliance swept all five seats, with notable victories in Singhbhum, Rajmahal, and Dumka.

The party’s strategy for the upcoming Assembly elections will likely focus on regaining ground in these critical areas under the new leadership of Sarma and Chouhan.
