Updated: August 25, 2022 3:44 pm

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren may get a big setback. The Election Commission has sent its recommendation to the Governor on the allegations of Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren being in the office of profit. In this, the EC has also recommended the cancellation of Hemant Soren’s assembly membership. On the other hand, the stir in Jharkhand has intensified. Governor Ramesh Bais has also reached Ranchi from Delhi. Some ministers and Advocate General of Hemant Soren government have also reached the CM residence. Hemant Soren’s party JMM has asked all its MLAs to reach Ranchi by evening. Meanwhile, Hemant Soren accused the BJP of misusing the statutory authorities and public agencies.

On the other hand BJP MP Nishikant Dubey said in this matter that Hemant Soren should move towards mid-term elections on moral grounds. The assembly should be dissolved and elections should be held in all 81 assembly constituencies.

It is worth mentioning that investigation is going on in the mining case against Hemant Soren. This case is related to the mining lease allotment case in his own name. Hemant has been accused of misusing the CM post. The decision of the Election Commission is binding on the Governor. BJP had complained to the Governor about illegal allocation.

A complaint was made against Hemant Soren for taking a stone quarry on lease in Angada, Ranchi, while being the Chief Minister. BJP had submitted a memorandum to Jharkhand Governor Ramesh Bais in February 2022, alleging that Hemant Soren, while in the post of Chief Minister, got the stone mining lease allotted in his name at Angada in Ranchi.
