Elections in Jharkand

Elections in Jharkand

Jharkand was formed from Bihar in the year 2000. The Jharkand consists of 81 assembly constituencies and the elections to these seats were held last in 2005. The result was not in favor of any party and the people of Jharkand witnessed brokering of votes, parties seats etc for the formation of the government.
