The ruling party members were embarrassed when Mandal made a statement in the House,”Our chief minister belongs to Chhattisgarh. The rights of Jharkhandi students are grabbed by those from other states.” As he continued to speak, the Speaker forced him to sit down.
Amid noisy scenes, Mandal said that Jharkhand had no domicile policy in the last 15 years and youths from other states were getting entry into grade three and four jobs through the backdoor.
Main opposition Jharkhand Mukti Morcha’s legislator Jagganath Mahto raised the domicile issue in the House with a slogan ‘implement domicile policy in the state’ written on his shirt.
The opposition members stood in the well of the house and shouted slogans to demand the implementation of the domicile policy in Jharkhand.
“Mandal wrongly stated that the chief minister belongs to Chhattisgarh. Ragubar Das is by birth and by heart a Jharkhandi,” said Biranchi Narayan, a BJP legislator.
