Who is Alamgir Alam?

Before this, Alamgir Alam was also the Speaker of Jharkhand Assembly from 20 October 2006 to 12 December 2009. After inheriting politics, Alamgir entered politics by winning the election of Sarpanch.

He defeated Akil Akhtar of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha by 18066 votes. In 2009, JMM’s Akil Akhtar became MLA. But in 2014 there was a sudden political change. Alamgir Alam, who was an MLA from Congress, then contested the elections on the ticket of Jharkhand Mukt Morcha and won.

Took oath as minister with CM Champai 

Alamgir Alam’s stature in Congress in Jharkhand can be gauged from the fact that after Hemant Soren went to jail, there was talk of making Alamgir Alam the Deputy CM in the new Champai Soren government formed in Jharkhand.

He took oath along with CM Champai Soren. However, there was deep resentment among the MLAs towards the party leadership due to the repetition of old faces from the Congress quota in the Champai cabinet. This MLA Hemant Soren was demanding to change all the faces of Congress quota who were included in the cabinet this time.

Jharkhand Weather Update : There will be relief from the scorching heat, weather patterns will change from today, there will be rain with thunderstorms.
