Jharkhand Parliament security as its 3 MLAs suspended with “huge money” in Bengal -by Ecork

The SUV includes the ‘Jamtara MLA’ board in which MLAs travel with the money, like for the police.


After three Congress legislators from Jharkhand were detained in Bengal with a “huge amount” of money in their car, the party sought to link it to the BJP, saying the three leaders were given money to make the state government fall. The BJP, however, said the bill was proof of corruption in the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha-Congress coalition government.

There is no response yet from the representatives – Irfan Ansari from Jamtara, Rajesh Kachhap from Khijri, and Naman Bixal Kongari from Kolebira – who have been questioned by the Howrah Rural Police about the source of the money. To determine the exact amount, note calculators will have to be used, officials said.

“It is in the nature of the BJP to try and undermine any government that is not theirs. The same thing has been done against CM Hemant Soren’s government,” alleged Bandhu Tirkey, Working President of Jharkhand Parliament, “The only reason MPs are given money is to bring down the government. “

In the 82-member assembly, JMM (30) and Congress (17) have 47 members – just over the majority mark – without support from others. The BJP is the main Opposition with 25 members, according to the Vidhan Sabha website.


Jharkhand Congress leader Bandhu Tirkey alleged a BJP conspiracy.

“Lotus work of BJP in Jharkhand stopped tonight in Howrah,” tweeted Jairam Ramesh, national communications coordinator of the Congress.

“The game plan of ‘Hum Do’ in Delhi is to do in Jharkhand what they did in Maharashtra by installing the ED duo,” he wrote. The government in Maharashtra has recently changed after a rebel group Shiv Sena – supported by the BJP – Unseated Uddhav Thackeray.Congress and NCP were partners in the fallen government.

Jharkhand BJP General Secretary Aditya Sahu, however, said the bill was proof of JMM-Congress corruption. “Since they came to power, corruption has been increasing. They are using public money for other purposes,” he told ANI news agency.

Dilip Ghosh, a senior BJP leader from Bengal, linked the Howrah action with the “probe against corruption” in Jharkhand.

Even before the parties in Jharkhand had reacted, Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress tweeted about “murmurs of horse-trading and the possible silence of the Jharkhand government”. Some leaders from Mamata Banerjee’s government – recently linked to party leader Partha Chatterjee in a job scam – have also drawn the Enforcement Directorate (ED), asking whether action will be taken against those who are not from Trinamool.

Chief Minister and Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee has recently accused the BJP of trying to force a change of government in Jharkhand after the recent change in Maharashtra. BJP did not specifically react to that.

But in his tweet today, Dilip Ghosh appeared to shut down the allegations about ED and Jharkhand, as he wrote: “Corrupt parties like Congress, Trinamool are trying to get away with crime by opposing investigative agencies.”
