Ranchi, September 5: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Monday won the trust vote in the Assembly. After winning, he took on the BJP for "creating an atmosphere of civil war and riots for political gains".

Hemant Soren alleged that obstacles were being presented before the Jharkhand Government. "The manner in which obstacles are being presented before our government. Three of our MLAs are in Bengal. The onus of poaching (of MLAs) in Bengal lies on Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. They don't cooperate with the police going to those states to probe this."

Hemant Soren said BJP would not succeed in its nefarious designs as long as the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was here in Jharkhand. "They want to create an atmosphere where two states are pitted against each other. They want to create an atmosphere of civil war and want to fan riots to win polls. As long as there is UPA Government here, such plots will not survive. You will get a befitting political reply," added Jharkhand CM.

What led to Trust Vote
A political crisis emerged in Jharkhand after a petition by the BJP sought Soren's disqualification from the Assembly in an office of profit case. The BJP has sought the disqualification of Soren as an MLA accusing him of allocating a mining lease to himself while he held the state Mining portfolio in 2021.
