Special Assembly session to be called over Sarna Code before state formation day says Chief Minister

Dumka: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said that he was worried over the demand of Sarna religious code being demanded by the tribals of the state.

Addressing a press conference on Friday at his residence here he said that before the state foundation day a special session of the Jharkhand Assembly would be convened in which a proposal would be passed over the Sarna code and the same would be sent to the centre.

He said that over the special session he has already spoken with the Governor on phone and in a day or two he would send a proposal to the Governor in this regard. The Chief Minister said that the issue of Sarna religious code has been put before him.

He said that the census is scheduled in 2021 in which there are columns for different communities but there was no separate column for the tribals. He said that post Independence also in different census there was separate column for the tribals which has been slowly removed therefore the tribals of the state are now worried as to where they would be keeping themselves in the census. He said that the demand for separate Sarna religious code has been raised by various forums in the state.

The Chief Minister said that it has been decided that before the state foundation day which falls on November 16 a special session of the assembly would be organised in which a proposal in this regard would be passed so that whenever the census happens the tribals can get their due place.

Attacking former Chief Minister Raghubar Das he said that he did not want to comment much on the behaviour and statements of Ragubar Das as his language and conduct is like that only. He said that BJP has the habit of keeping in its side such people who are multi-faced.

The Chief Minister said that while one face stabs in the back, another provides medicine and the third provides sympathy. He said that the entire country has come to know about their acts and soon the results would be in front of everyone. He said that when they are not able to win the battle of democracy with the use of words they start using money power.
