JMM calls Jharkhand bandh on May 14 over domicile policy

Ranchi, Apr 20: Protesting against the state government's definition of domicile policy, the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) has called a statewide bandh on May 14.

Dismissing the state government's April 7 announcement of the policy, the JMM at its central executive committee meeting here yesterday, chalked out a series of protests in the run up to the bandh, a party release said today.


The party will observe Kolhan Division bandh on April 24 as a mark of protest to the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jamshedpur, which falls under the Division, demanding a policy that would "honour people's expectation", it said.

From April 20 to 28, the party will launch an awareness drive and connect with the people on the issue, pitching for a new definition of the domicile policy based on the last revenue survey '(khatiyan-land title)'.

Demonstrations will be held in all blocks and district headquarters of the state on April 30 and May 7 respectively, the release added.
