Sita Soren refutes closeness with BJP

Ranchi: JMM MLA and daughter-in-law of the JMM patriarch Shibu Soren, Sita Soren on Friday rebuffed allegations that she has been in close touch with the BJP.

“It would be better if you ask this question to those MLAs who flew to Delhi in a chartered plane. I will not name anybody. But everyone knows who they are,” Sita Soren said on Friday outside the Raj Bhawan after her meeting with Jharkhand Governor Ramesh Bais.

She placed those on the docks who question her loyalty.

She had sought an appointment with the Governor hours after there was whispers in the power corridor of Jharkhand that the JMM patriarch Shibu Soren has been informed about her anti-party activities and her alleged hobnobbing with the BJP to topple the Hemant Soren-led government.

Sita Soren said that she wanted to raise her concerns about growing corruption in Jharkhand and the loot of land and other natural resources in Jharkhand that the government has failed to stop.  She also submitted a memorandum in this regard and said that she was deeply disappointed as the government always turned blind eyes toward her complaints.

From Santhal Pargana to Baharagora, there is the loot of land everywhere. During the assembly sessions she had raised this issue on various occasions but did not get a satisfactory reply from the government. For instance, in the CCL Amrapali project, the company RKTC-BLA encroached on 1.5 km of forest land. She had informed the government but no action was taken.
