Another former chief minister and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) chief Shibu Soren is seeking a re-election from this seat. He filed his nomination papers on Monday.

Shibu Soren has been elected six times from this constituency. After filing his nomination, Marandi said "Shibu Soren has done nothing for the people of this region."

“People have made up their mind and it will reflect in poll results”, he said.

Marandi has been Koderma Lok Sabha MP since 2004 and has now shifted to Dumka to fight the polls.

When asked about his decision to change his constituency, he said it was the "party's decision" to fight from Dumka. Marandi quit the BJP and floated his own party JVM-P in 2006.
