Champai Soren takes oath as Jharkhand Chief Minister

kk

RANCHI: Jharkhand Mukti Morcha party leader Champai Soren (67) has taken oath as the seventh Chief Minister of Jharkhand.
The oath-taking ceremony took place at the Raj Bhavan in Ranchi around 12.15 pm. JMM leader Hemant Soren had resigned as the Chief Minister on Wednesday night after he was taken into ED custody in a money laundering case.

On Thursday, Jharkhand Governor CP Radhakrishnan invited Champai Soren to Raj Bhavan to form the government in the state. Champai Soren, a loyalist of JMM leader Hemant Soren, has been mandated to demonstrate his majority in a floor test, which will be held within the next 10 days. Champai Soren, along with 43 legislators had met Jharkhand Governor CP Radhakrishnan at Raj Bhavan, staking a claim to form the government in the state.

Meanwhile, reports are claiming that several legislators are leaving for Hyderabad ahead of the floor test in the assembly. This is an effort by the alliance to protect its flock.
