A day after winning the floor test, Jharkhand Chief Minister Champai Soren arrived to Ranchi’s State Assembly for the final day of the special session.
“What is there to say?” “What can I say about those who have no issue (to raise)?” the Chief Minister said to reporters as he approached the Assembly.
Chief Minister Champai Soren won the Trust Vote on Monday with a 47:29 margin.
In the 81-member assembly, the midway point for a majority is 41. The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, with 29 seats, and its ally Congress, with 17, were optimistic of comfortably passing the trust vote.
Former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, who was arrested by the Directorate of Enforcement in connection with the alleged land scam, was also present in the Assembly for the floor test. On February 2, the court remanded Soren to ED custody for five days.
A special court in Ranchi granted Soren permission to vote in the Trust Vote. Participating in the debate, Hemant Soren stated that his arrest is just one example of the various forms of persecution that tribals and Dalits experience in society.
The Chief Minister launched the debate on the trust resolution in the 81-member Assembly, claiming that the Centre is exploiting the agencies.
“The central government’s leader abused agencies. In 2019, Hemant received the mandate. “Such a Chief Minister is arrested in a land scam case,” the Chief Minister stated, defending his predecessor.
He stated that throughout Jharkhand’s history, anytime tribals try to expand their ability, attempts are made to restrict their leadership.
“Today the whole country is seeing how injustice is being done to Hemant Soren. If you go to any village, you will find Hemant Soren’s schemes in every house,” he added.
