KD outlines party plans for state
- Trinamul eye all seats in next Assembly poll

Jamshedpur, June 23: The Jamshedpur bypoll is Trinamul Congress’ stepping stone into Jharkhand polity and the party will contest in all constituencies in the next Assembly elections.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Rajya Sabha MP and Trinamul Congress Jharkhand in-charge Kunwar Deep Singh, who is in the city to plan the election strategy of party candidate Suman Mahto, said as soon as the bypoll was over, his party would go all out to strengthen its base in Jharkhand.

“Jamshedpur bypoll is a litmus test for the party and we are pulling out all stops to woo the electorate with our issues of Ma, Mati and Manush and would be forming block level and district level committees across Jharkhand. We are preparing in right earnest keeping in mind the next Assembly elections when we will field candidates in all 81 constituencies,” said the chairman of the Rs 10,000 crore Alchemist Group.

The Delhi-based Singh, who entered Rajya Sabha on a JMM ticket but switched allegiance to TMC earlier this year, said Mamata Banerjee’s simplicity bowled him over.

He underlined that the party’s main political agenda was to reduce the economic disparity in a state.

Coming down heavily on coalition politics which has thrown Jharkhand into political crisis on several occasions, Singh said, “The coalition government is an unscrupulous combination of individuals whose only agenda is to protect their vested interest and in the process has ushered in a loot raj in Jharkhand.”

Confirming the names of star campaigners lined up to campaign in Jamshedpur, Singh said, “Mamata Didi would be arriving on June 28 while dates for Tollywood actors Shatabdi Roy, Tapas Paul, leaders Sultan Ahmed and Mukul Roy would be announced soon.”
