PM Modi Slams 'Father-Son' Duo in Jharkhand, Calls For Change

Launching an attack on JMM chief Shibu Soren and his Chief Minister son Hemant Soren, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the "father and son" have filled their own coffers and did nothing for tribals in Jharkhand.

Taking on ruling JMM in its home turf, Santhal Pargana, the Prime Minister addressed rallies in Dumka and Barheit, the two seats from where the chief minister is contesting, and said that the state has the potential to fill up the coffers of the country.

Modi alleged that the ruling party did nothing but loot its poor tribals and asked the people to punish it in the polls.

"Shouldn't the youth here get employment so that they don't have to go thousands of miles away for job?... The youth could fill up the coffers of the government," he said.

"Baap beta ne apna tijory bhari (father and son filled up their own coffers)," he said referring to the Sorens.

Drawing parallels, Modi said just as a mother does not give sweets to her son if he commits a wrong, so too the people should punish the "looters" in the polls.

The Santhal Parganas is considered the JMM bastion and its 16 Assembly seats will go to polls in the fifth and final phase on December 20.
