About Jharkhand Assembly Election 2014


The first assembly elections were held in 2000 in Jharkhand. The assembly elections for 2014 are scheduled to be
 held in five phases between November 25 and December 20. The Vidhan Sabha of Jharkhand consists of 82 seats amongst which 81 are directly elected and one seat is nominated. The fate of the candidates will be decided by about two crore voters. The major parties in the state include Indian National Congress (INC), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and Janata Dal (United) - JD(U).

In the General Elections, Congress was rejected by the Jharkhand electorate. As a part of strategy for the upcoming assembly elections, Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee (JPCC) is planning to organise 'chintan shivir' in different parts of the state to find means to get back the faith of the people. JPCC leaders are urged to be aware of the problems of the people of their districts and find out the demands of the people.

The BJP appears to contest the upcoming Jharkhand assembly elections all alone. Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) led by Babulal Marandi was among the regional parties which had to face defeat in the general election. However, Marandi said that his party will contest the assembly election from all 81 constituencies.

Jharkhand Election History


Jharkhand is the state where active politics have always been under way right from the heydays, when the state came into existence as the breakaway faction from the erstwhile Bihar, in the year 2000. The electoral system of Jharkhand is divided between the assembly and parliamentary constituencies and in each of these many national and regional political parties vie for the power. It is also significant to note that Jharkhand has quite a huge number of political parties, compared to UP and Bihar.

Administrative structure



Like most of the Indian states, the administrative structure of the state is determined by the Constitution of 1950. The Governor is the head of the state and functions on the advice of the Chief Minister. CM is the head of the government. The state is divided into many districts. Each district is governed by a deputy commissioner. The judiciary consists of a High Court in Ranchi and other district courts, subdivisional courts, munsifs’ (subordinate judicial officers’) courts, and village councils.

Issues of the state



Naxalism:It is one of the 13 states in India where Naxalites have a major influence. The Leftist rebels are active in 18 out of 24 districts of the state. Jharkhand has witnessed the loss of countless lives in Maoist violence. People live in miserable poverty, thus providing wide recruits for the Left insurgents who argue that they are fighting on behalf of the landless poor.

Development & stability:The region was earlier known for its educational infrastructure but after achieving the status of a full-fledged state, it failed to open even a single state-of-the-art institute.

Political Parties in Jharkhand



 Jharkhand elections have seen the active participation of several national, state and registered political parties like:

Indian National Congress (INC) Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) Communist Party of India (CPI)
Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) Janata Dal (United) JD(U) RashtriyaJanata Dal (RJD)
All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (Liberation) Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha
Janata Dal (Secular)JD(S) All India Forward Bloc (Subhasist) AIFB(S) Indian Justice Party (IJP)
SadanVikas Party (SVKP) RashtriyaSamanta Dal (RSMD) Jharkhand Vikas Dal (JVD)

JMM is in fact the biggest political party in the state. The political system in the state of Jharkhand has changed significantly over the years. 

Political distribution of Jharkhand



The state is divided politically into Kolhan, South Chhotanagpur, North Chhotanagpur, SanthalPargana (Dumka) and Palamu. Kolhan region includes 3 districts specifically East Singhbhum, West Singhbhum and Saraikela and has 2 Lok Sabha Seats viz Jamshedpur and Singhbhum-which is predominantly an Adivasi region.

The North Chhotanagpur region has seven districts viz Chatra, Koderma, Giridih, Hazaribagh, Ramgarh, Bokaro and Dhanbad and comprises 5 LS seats namely Chatra, Koderma, Giridih, Dhanbad and Hazaribagh respectively. South Chhotanagpur region has 5 districts namely Ranchi, Khunti, Lohardagga, Gumla and Simdega and 3 LS seats namely Ranchi, Khunti and Loherdagga. These regions are also predominantly Adivasi regions. Palamu region has 3 districts namely Palamu, Latehar and Garhwa and 1 LS seat namely Palamu, having a meagre Adivasi population and high scheduled caste population. Santhal Pargana region has 6 districts namely Deoghar, Godda, Sahebganj, Pakur, Dumka and Jamtara and 3 LS seats namely Rajmahal, Dumka and Godda.
