He said adivasi and non-adivasi chief minister is not an issue in Jharkhand albeit government in majority is need of the hour for all round development. Das, who is also considered to be a strong non-adivasi chief ministerial candidate rejected the theory that he has been elevated as national vice-president in a bid to sideline him from state politics, saying he is a party worker and would take whatever responsibility party gives.
The Bharatiya Janata Party-All Jharkhand Students Union alliance won a clear majority in the assembly elections. The BJP emerged as the single largest party with 37 seats, while the AJSU bagged five in the 81-seat assembly.
