About Lohardaga:

These districts, which house the Lohardaga constituency, are part of the Red Corridor, owing to the massive number of Maoist insurgencies witnessed in these regions. Although this area is renowned for its rich mineral reserves such as bauxite and laterite, these districts of Gumla, Lohardaga and Ranchi have been identified as economically backward districts. These are thus being funded through the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme.

Present Political Scenario:

High Stakes in Political Bargaining

BJP has re-nominated sitting MP Sudarshan Bhagat who had narrowly defeated Congress’s old warhorse, Rameshwar Oraon in 2009.

 Ex IPS Arun Oraon is now with the BJP but was expecting to get the party ticket here and it is not yet clear how he would react to ticket denial.

If Arun Oraon works for the BJP then it would be an easy victory for Sudarshan Bhagat, else it’s a tight contest, especially if Chamra Linda, the sitting independent MLA of Gumla doesn’t contest. Thus the victory of BJP or Congress here could be decided by two external leaders – Arun Oraon and Chamra Linda.
