Champai Soren Resigns As CM

Jharkhand Chief Minister Champai Soren tendered his resignation to Governor CP Radhakrishnan at Raj Bhavan in Ranchi on Wednesday to pave the way for Jharkhand Mukti Morcha executive president Hemant Soren to again take over the role. Following Champai Soren’s resignation, Hemant Soren staked the claim to form the government.

After tendering his resignation to the Governor, Champai Soren said the ruling alliance had chosen Hemant Soren as the leader.

“A few days ago, I was made the Chief Minister and I got the responsibility of the state. After Hemant Soren was back, our alliance took this decision and we chose Hemant Soren as our leader. Now, I have resigned from the post of Chief Minster,” Champai Soren told reporters.

Hemant Soren was released from the Birsa Munda Jail on June 28 after nearly five months following bail from Jharkhand High Court in a money laundering case linked to an alleged land scam. He had resigned as Chief Minister before his arrest on January 31.

After being released on bail, Hemant Soren said on Saturday that the state is a land of courageous people and there is no need to be scared of anyone.

Earlier in the day, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey took a dig at Jharkhand Mukti Morcha over the leadership change in the state.

“The Champai Soren era is over in Jharkhand. In the family-oriented party, people outside the family have no political future. I wish the chief minister drew inspiration from Bhagwan Birsa Munda and stood up against the corrupt Hemant Soren ji,” he posted on X.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma also reacted to the change of leadership in Jharkhand and alleged that a senior tribal leader was being removed.

“The removal of a senior tribal leader from the post of Chief Minister in Jharkhand by the JMM and Congress party is deeply distressing. I am certain that the people of Jharkhand will strongly condemn this action and firmly reject it,” he said in a post on X.

Hemant Soren was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in January on charges related to an alleged land scam and money laundering.

The investigation concerns the purported generation of substantial proceeds through the alleged forgery of official records, involving “fake sellers and buyers” to acquire large parcels of land. (ANI)
