Assam Chief Minister and the BJP’s go-to man, Himanta Biswa Sarma, Jharkahnd MLA who alleged a bid to topple the JMM-Congress-RJD government, Telangana Congress leader in eye of the storm, and SP MLA who is known as the ‘Bahubali’ of Phoolpur Pawai — we bring to you the Newsmakers of the Week.
Jharkhand MLA Kumar Jaimangal
In July 2021, Congress MLA from Bermo Kumar Jaimangal lodged a complaint about attempts being made to “destabilise the coalition government in Jharkhand”. Based on his complaint, an FIR was registered and three persons were arrested, one a fruit-seller with alleged ties to the BJP. The BJP denied any links, the government did not face any trouble, and the matter died down. Almost exactly a year later, it is Jaimangal again who has filed a complaint following the arrest of three Congress MLAs in West Bengal with Rs 50 lakh in cash. He has again alleged a bid to topple the JMM-Congress-RJD government in the state, and claimed that the MLAs had lured him to meet Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. But Jaimangal found himself in a spot when earlier this week Assam government spokesperson Pijush Hazarika posted the MLA’s photos with Sarma and Union minister Pralhad Joshi. But who is Jaimangal? Read Abhishek Angad’s report on the Congress MLA who first came to limelight in 2009.
