Accusing UPA of tarnishing Jharkhand's image, BJP on Wednesday said it had failed to meet the expectations of the people.
"The self-centred politics of the UPA allies and rampant corruption during its regimes have spoiled the image of the new state at a time when Chhatisgarh and Uttarakhand, both created at about the same time, have made rapid strides in development," BJP's new state unit president Raghuvar Das said.
Addressing his first press conference after taking over charge from P N Singh, Das denied reports that efforts were on to bring back former chief minister Babulal Marandi, who quit the party three years ago.
However, any party worker or leader who left BJP was welcome to return provided they shed selfishness and personal ambition as the party believes in its organisational strength and not in individual.
Marandi had quit BJP when he was its national vice-president after falling out with the party leadership.
