CM Hemant Soren said, "If I am the culprit then the Election Commission and the Governor should punish me'
In the matter of office of profit, the sword has been hanging on the assembly membership of Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren for some time now. However, the decision of the Governor on the recommendation of the Election Commission is yet to be taken. Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren spoke his mind today on the long-running political suspense.
'If I am the culprit then the Election Commission and the Governor should punish me', says Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren. Today, Hemant Soren reacted to the political suspense on the assembly membership in the case of the Office of Profit. Talking to reporters at CM House on Saturday, Soren said, "I am the first Chief Minister of the whole country, who is going to his door, urging him to tell with folded hands that if I have any crime, then what should I do for it? Has the sentence been fixed? I am asking him time and again that according to him I am really guilty, so how am I continuing in the post of Chief Minister?
The Chief Minister said that his opponents and opponents are trying to create an atmosphere of confusion and uncertainty in the state by allegedly spreading rumours of his disqualification on the mining lease issue. Describing the opposition as restless and wandering souls, Soren said that when they have no problem left against me, they are conspiring to bake the bread of their politics under the guise of constitutional institutions.
On the allegations levelled by the opposition regarding the mining lease, Hemant Soren questioned whether a CM would scam for just 88 decimals of land. Those who make such allegations should die drowning in full water. The truth is that the leaders of our opposition in the state and at the center are not able to understand how the tribals are handling the system by coming ahead of the deprived society.
Soren also questioned the credibility and transparency of central agencies. He said that the way the central agencies are working, it seems that there is some power behind them, on whose behest they are compelled to follow. Reiterating the claim that Jharkhand's share was due to the central government amounting to one lakh 36 thousand crores, the Chief Minister said that despite our repeated and reasonable demands, we are being made captive for every rupee. Along with Jharkhand, the central government is treating all the non-BJP-ruled states of the whole country in the same way.
What is your role in the efforts being made to form a front of non-BJP parties at the national level? On this question, Chief Minister and JMM working president Hemant Soren said that the initiative to form such a front has just reached the stage of maturity. When the situation becomes more clear regarding this in the coming days, we will see what our role will be. At present, the alliance of JMM, Congress and RJD is strong in the state.
