Ranchi, Jan 25: Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren on Monday, Jan 25, said he is determined to win Tamar Assembly by-poll this year.
Speaking to reporters, Soren said, "I can fight from any of two seats, Jama and Jamtara."
Jama is represented in the Assembly by his daughter-in-law by Sita Soren. Jamtara's legislator is also a member of the JMM, Vishnu Bhaiya.
The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) leader, who took over as Chief Minister on Dec 30, 2009, had lost the Tamar Assembly by-poll in Jan 2009.
He needs to become a member of the state Assembly within six months.
JMM leaders are working hard to ensure that there is no repeat of the debacle.
A senior JMM leader said, "Soren lost the Tamar Assembly poll as Congress played dirty. The hunt is on for a safer seat for Shibu Soren. "
"We are calculating all aspects as the Congress alliance will again try to repeat what had happened in Tamar," he added.
