Hemant Soren has managed to go toe-to-toe with the BJP’s might, throwing everything but the kitchen sink at them.
“Even we have a problem with coalition government and I am trying to end this,” said the Jharkhand CM.
Polling will begin at 7 AM and end at 3 PM in all the 16 constituencies.
Hemant claimed that BJP would lose so badly that it would not even dream of contesting polls in Jharkhand again.
The BJP holds only two seats in the 16 constituencies voting in the last phase on December 20; the JMM holds 10.
By October 31, the JMM-Congress alliance was over.
The JMM leader has been the most vocal opponent of Modi in this election season, matching the BJP leader when it comes to verbal barbs.
JMM, which has decided to go it alone, has accused three Congress leaders of sabotaging the deal for personal gains.
JMM has been heading the coalition with the support of Congress, RJD and other partie.
This October is a far cry from January 2013 when Hemant, 39, who had pulled down the Arjun Munda government, was made to wait six months by the Congress before it lent its support

The clash took place as JMM activists shouted slogans and showed black flags as Tomar’s convoy passed through.
The Congress said no Prime Minister before has sought to publicly humiliate CMs in this fashion.
Addressing a public meeting Modi said that Jharkhand has the potential to be developed many times more than Gujarat.
The Hemant government needs at least 39 MLAs to survive a floor test.
