New Delhi


Chhattisgarh minister T.S. Singhdeo has been appointed as observer for the meeting of the Congress Legislature Party in Jharkhand which is scheduled to elect its leader in the Assembly.

Congress has won 16 seats in the Jharkhand Assembly polls as the party gained a majority in the state with te Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and RJD aliance. In the outgoing Assembly, Alamgir Alam was the leader of the party in the House.

The Congress is jubilant after defeating the BJP in the state. The Congress, upbeat as the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha-Congress-Rashtriya Janata Dal alliance secured victory in Jharkhand on Monday, termed the results a rejection of BJP's "anti-people" and "anti-Constitution" policies.

Congress General Secretary K.C. Venugopal said the results of the Jharkhand Assembly election are "a substantive and clear mandate against the divisive and disruptive political actions of (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and the BJP".

"The people of Jharkhand have rejected the anti-people and anti-Constitution policies of the BJP. Instead of talking about the development in respective states or issues of common people, the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were trying to fool the people by their narrow minded divisive political actions and sectarian agenda," he said.

Venugopal said the people of Jharkhand have given a befitting reply to the BJP.ians
