Champai Soren resigned as Jharkhand chief minister on Wednesday, handing his resignation to the governor. Hemant Soren, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) executive president, has now staked a claim to form the government.

“A few days ago, I was made the Chief Minister and I got the responsibility of the state. After Hemant Soren was back, our alliance took this decision and we chose Hemant Soren as our leader. Now, I have resigned from the post of Chief Minister,” Champai Soren told reporters. The 67-year-old JMM leader was sworn in as chief minister on February 2 after Hemant Soren had to resign due to an alleged land scam case investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Hemant Soren was released from jail on June 28 after nearly five months, granted bail by the Jharkhand high court in a money laundering case linked to the alleged land scam.

“The CM (Champai Soren) has told you everything… We will tell you everything in detail. We have followed all procedures,” Hemant Soren told reporters after meeting the governor to stake his claim for forming the government.

After his release, Hemant Soren claimed to be a victim of conspiracy. “I was falsely implicated. A conspiracy was hatched against me, and I was forced to spend five months in jail. I respect the judiciary. The court delivered its order, and I am out (on bail). But the judicial process is long,” he added.

The Jharkhand high court noted that while the Enforcement Directorate highlighted the conduct of the petitioner and the FIR against ED officials, there is no likelihood of the petitioner committing a similar offense. Soren had been summoned multiple times by the ED before being questioned at his residence and subsequently arrested on January 31.
