Hemant Soren wins trust vote in Jharkhand Assembly

PTC News Desk: Hemant Soren won the floor test during a special session of the state assembly on Monday, only days after being sworn in for the third time as Jharkhand's Chief Minister.

Hemant Soren won the vote of trust with 45 MLAs voting for him. On July 4, he was sworn in as Jharkhand's 13th chief minister at Raj Bhavan in Ranchi.


Hemant Soren was released from Birsa Munda Jail on June 28, nearly five months after by the Jharkhand High Court in a money laundering case involving an alleged land scam.

He resigned as Chief Minister before being arrested on January 31. He was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in January on charges of alleged land fraud and money laundering.

Champai Soren, who had taken over as CM following the arrest, resigned just five months after taking the oath, paving the way for Hemant Soren to resume the office on Wednesday. On February 2 of this year, Champai Soren took oath as Jharkhand's 12th Chief Minister at the Raj Bhavan.
