PATNA:Former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi on Friday formally floated his new political party Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM), to take on the Janata Parivar by contesting all the 243 seats in the coming Bihar Assembly polls.

“We will soon move the Election Commission for registration of the new party with a flag -- green border on the top and bottom and middle portion will be white with the word HAM written on it” said Manjhi in a press conference here.

Manjhi, who was ousted as Bihar CM, while making it clear that his successor Nitish Kumar is the enemy number one of his new party said his party would keep a distance from any political party having any kind of alliance with Nitish.

Earlier, Manjhi along with more than a dozen other rebel MLAs had floated a new political organisation named “Hindustani Awam Morcha” (HAM). He had organised many political rallies in different parts of the state and a mega rally in Patna to strengthen his support base. During the media briefing, former minister and senior leader Shakuni Chaudhary was named state chief of the party. A list comprising the names of 108 leaders was also annouced at the press meet. It includes former Union minister Devendra Prasad Yadav, ex-MP Brahamdeo Anand Paswan and former state ministers and Legislators like Ganesh Yadav, Ram Kumar Yadav, Om Prakash Paswan, K D Yadav and Ramchandra Prasad Singh.

However, Manjhi and 17 other rebel JD(U) legislators’ names were missing from the new list of the party for some technical reasons.
