JMM has already committed its support to the NDA candidate for the President’s post Draupadi Murmu ignoring the pleas of the UPA partners, sparking off rumours about a possible rift in UPA..

Draupadi Murmu’s candidature had put JMM into a big dilemma. Being from the Santhal tribe, she is all set to be the first tribal president of India and JMM would hardly afford to be seen opposing her candidature.

Besides, Hemant Soren and other leaders of JMM have always been very respectful towards her, especially due to her highly portly conduct as the Governor of Jharkhand.

In the letter announcing JMM’s support, the party said that her candidature for the President’s post is a proud moment for the tribals since independence.
