Hemant Soren Takes Oath as Jharkhand Chief Minister After Release from Jail

Governor Invites Soren to Form Government Following Champai Soren's Resignation

Ranchi, July 4 : Hemant Soren, the executive chief of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), took the oath as the Chief Minister of Jharkhand on Thursday, following his release from jail in a money laundering case.

Earlier in the day, Governor C P Radhakrishnan invited Soren to form the government, a day after his predecessor, Champai Soren, stepped down as Chief Minister. Champai Soren met the Governor on Wednesday to submit his resignation after the ruling coalition’s 45 MLAs elected Hemant Soren as their leader.

Hemant Soren was granted bail by the Jharkhand High Court on June 28, five months after his arrest. The court noted that there were “reasons to believe that he was not guilty of the offence” of money laundering related to a plot of land in Ranchi.
