Ranchi, Jan 9: Chief Minister Hemant Soren led JMM-Congress-RJD coalition government in Jharkhand has announced dropping of the sedition charges slapped against 3,000 people for taking part in a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and anti NRC in Wasseypur area.

Soren emphasized that people are free to present their views on the government policies and said, “Laws are not made to frighten and silence the people but to instil a feeling of safety in the public. My government will work towards being the voice of the people. We have recommended taking back the sedition cases registered against 3,000 people and also asked for action against the concerned official.”
“Meanwhile, I also urge the people of Jharkhand that it is their state and abiding the law and order is their duty,” he added.
He also shared pictures of the letter asking for action against the official and dropping the sedition case.
