JMM asks Prez for more time on the Sarna Code

Ahead of the general election, the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha has asked President Droupadi Murmu to meet in order to discuss a number of urgent matters. The JMM listed their concerns in a letter dated March 4 sent to the President’s Secretary. These issues included the Sarna Code, reservations for SC/ST and OBC people, and Jharkhand’s 1932 local policy. Despite pursuing these concerns, the administration of Hemant Soren ran against roadblocks that prevented them from being implemented. Along with accommodations for adherents of the six main faiths, the government pushed for the Sarna code to be included in the census form’s religious area.

In the Jharkhand LS election, CPI chooses to stand alone.

The CPI’s announcement that it will to field candidates for eight Lok Sabha seats in Jharkhand is another blow to the INDIA Alliance. Feeling let down by the lack of conversations over seat distribution, the CPI decided to run on its own, concentrating on eight of the state’s fourteen seats. Even though the CPI is currently unrepresented in the Jharkhand legislature, its decision to leave the INDI coalition is seen as a serious setback for the opposition. The party intends to propose candidates in Jamshedpur, Dumka, Giridih, Palamu, and other important seats.

Government must instruct in local, tribal languages

The Jharkhand government has made a historic move by announcing intentions to start educating primary-level kids in government schools across areas with a high tribal population in tribal and regional languages. In order to improve student understanding, Chief Minister Champai Soren called a high-level conference to discuss the execution of this policy. Right now, only Bengali and Odia are taught in a few chosen schools, mostly in the Kolhan area. Nonetheless, the curriculum will include languages like Santhali, Kudukh, Khadiya, Khortha, Nagpuri, and Mundari thanks to this effort.
