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 by the end of the year. The Vidhan Sabha of Jharkhand consists of 81 MLA's who are directly elected from single-seat constituencies. The fate of the candidates will be decided by 19948683 voters . The major parties in the state include Indian National Congress (INC), Bhartiya Janta 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.

In other words, the present political situation in Jharkhand has made the Congress a little anxious. The Congress is set 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.

BJP veteran LK Advani, on the other hand backed party leader Yashwant Sinha and said that he is the 'right person' to be the Chief Minister.

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 state of Jharkhand accumulates rich election history. 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. Many regional parties in the state of Jharkhand are registered but at present have minimum political impact. However, political activists of these parties take a keen interest in the assembly and general elections.

Not shocking, if one analyzes the constituency-wise list, it is tough not to come across the farce in the Jharkhand elections. The most distressing feature concerning here is coming of numerous Independents, who are fighting the elections for the first time and emerging victorious and competing in constituencies at par with candidates from main political groupings.

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 Council of Ministers. Jharkhand has a bicameral legislature in which the Legislative Council (Vidhan Parishad) is the upper house and the Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) is the lower house. 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 kloss 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. These issues may appear to be inferior in face of corruption and Naxal problem, but common man is directly affected by them.

Political Parties in Jharkhand

Jharkand 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.
