Ranchi: After the JMM blamed the EVMs for the defeat of the party the BJP immediately hit back stating that since the party had been rejected by the people therefore it was now blaming the EVM.

He said that people of Santhal Pargana very angry against JMM and despite the ill health of Guruji he was fielded from the seat. He said that all sections of the society have supported the BJP over the issue of development.
Pratul said that Hemant Soren was right to you accept that nationalism was the biggest issue in the election and the country will remain safe only if the borders are safe and then only there would be some other issue. He said that BJP had fought these elections on the issue of development and nationalism.
He said that Hemant Soren is yet not ready to accept his defeat and was making excuses but in the assembly elections he would face the real truth.
