The upcoming assembly elections in Jharkhand is all set to be a challenge for the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party that is struggling to retain the state, as it has suffered four back-to-back electoral setbacks in the elections held last year.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi -led BJP that boasted of having 16 chief ministers in its kitty in November last year has already lost four major states. The electoral drubbings in four states assume significance as they happened on both sides of general elections held earlier this year in which Prime Minister Modi pulled off a spectacular victory for his party.

The challenge in Jharkhand appears tough for BJP in view of the assembly election results in Maharashtra and Haryana, and subsequent trouble it faced with allies. The dismal performance and bitter experience with its allies in Maharashtra and Haryana is weighing heavily in the minds of party leadership.

The BJP has not yet finalized a seat-sharing arrangement with its existing ally – the All Jharkhand Students Union in Jharkhand. Besides LJP, another of its ally too has now decided to quit the alliance and contest the assembly elections on its own.

However, the opposition grouping consisting of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, the Congress and the RJD - have already sealed a seat-sharing formula after returning from the verge of collapse. Hence, the Opposition alliance looks formidable in Jharkhand. The recent happenings in the state BJP in the run-up to the Jharkhand assembly elections, have not only come up as serious problems for BJP but also the switching of sides by its chief whip Radhakrishna Kishore and other leaders to AJSU have further complicated the matters. In fact, state elections have emerged as a new headache for the BJP.
