Political Profile of Jharkhand Government



The assembly elections were held in Jharkhand in 2005. The BJP led NDA coalition ended up with a marginal win over the UPA group. It was a mammoth electoral process that saw as many as nine national parties, four state parties and about forty regional and registered parties competing for the laurels. It was therefore no doubt that there were vigorous shifts and consolidations of alliances in the period following the three phase elections. The legislative council itself was an eclectic mix of parties. Troubles predictably kept shooting up in the aftermath of the formation of the Jharkhand government. However, the determination of the key members of the government kept the boat steady and the government at Jharkhand seems to be committed towards the betterment of the state's holistic profile.
