The 13th Chief Minister of Jharkhand, Hemant Soren, head of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), was administered the oath of office for the second time on Thursday evening. Earlier on Wednesday, Champai Soren had resigned from the post of serving as the Chief Minister. After this, JMM leader Hemant Soren met Governor CP Radhakrishnan at Raj Bhavan and expressed his readiness to form the government. This is the third term for Hemant Soren as Chief Minister.

Earlier, indications were also strong when Hemant would be taking the oath of office and secrecy on July 7. In a meeting held at Champai Soren’s official residence in Ranchi, ruling coalition leaders and legislators unanimously elected Hemant Soren as the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha Legislature Party leader. Following this, Champai Soren submitted his resignation to the Governor from the post of Chief Minister. Before that, Champai Soren met the Governor in a state ruling coalition delegation, comprising State Congress President Rajesh Thakur, State Congress In-Charge Gulam Ahmad Mir, RJD leader, and Minister Satyanand Bhokta, along with Hemant Soren and CPI (ML) MLA Vinod Singh.

Champai Soren, after tendering his resignation to the Governor, said he has resigned based on the decision of the JMM-led coalition. Conclusively, he said that their coalition is strong in the House. He further stated that the house was decided in favor of Hemant Soren. Consequently, Hemant Soren took the oath as Chief Minister for the third time.

On June 28, Hemant Soren was released from jail after being bailed by the High Court over a money laundering case that he was caught up in over a land scam. He had been in jail for almost five months. Hemant was no more the jailed Chief Minister he had signed out long on January 31.
