Manjhi floats Hindustani Awam Morcha party

Asking youths and common people to join politics and social service, former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi and his supporters on Saturday floated ‘Hindustani Awam Morcha’ (HAM), a front to work for the public.

“A public movement is needed in Bihar. We are forming Hindustani Awam Morcha to work for the people. It will be known as HAM, meaning ‘we’ after AAP (Aam Aadmi Party). It will work for everybody. We will need support of all of you in this,” Manjhi said. The announcement was made at jam-packed Sri Krishna Memorial Hall in the state capital, where the rebel leaders and supporters of JD (U) had convened a ‘karyakarta swabhiman sammelan’ (worker self-respect summit). Manjhi said there were some technical difficulties right now due to which a front was being formed instead of a political party.

Meanwhile, Manjhi on Saturday stoked a controversy by alleging that Bihar Niwas in New Delhi was washed with ‘Ganga jal (water)’ after his visit so that his successor Nitish Kumar could stay there.

“I went to Bihar Niwas and found out that it was being washed with Ganga jal as I had stayed there earlier. How could Kumar stay at such a place where others have stayed? He is of such kind of mentality,” Manjhi said, speaking at the launch of the Hindustan Awam Morcha (HAM).
