Alliance will form govt in state, Hemant Soren will be CM: Congress

Counting underway across all 81 Assembly constituencies. The JMM-Congress-RJD alliance is currently leading.

As the JMM-led alliance appeared set to cross the majority mark in the Jharkhand assembly polls on Monday, the Congress exuded confidence that the alliance will form the government with Hemant Soren as chief minister.

All India Congress Committee in-charge for Jharkhand, RPN Singh said, “We will form the government as we fought the elections for the people of the state by raising issues that affect their lives and livelihoods. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah tried to divert the attention of the people away from fundamental issues but the people did not get swayed.”

Reiterating that Hemant Soren of the JMM will be the chief minister as declared earlier, Singh said the Jharkhand results are a defeat of BJP’s “arrogance and diversionary tactics”.
