Jharkhand crisis: CM Soren leads MPs from ruling camp to guest house in Khunti | Latest India News

Lawmakers from the ruling coalition in Jharkhand were moved to a guest house in Khunti district, the neighboring capital of Ranchi, on Saturday. According to reports, the deputies were led by Chief Minister and Head of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Hemant Soren, in two heavily guarded buses.

The development came after a marathon third round of meetings of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) lawmakers were held at the Chief Minister’s Ranchi residence to strategize to deal with the emerging scenario.

Besides the JMM, the Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) led by Lalu Prsada Yadav are part of the ruling coalition.

Former state congress speaker Rajesh Thakur said MPs from his party were invited to come to the ruling coalition meeting with their luggage.

“We will let you know if MPs are invited to move somewhere,” the Jharkhand Congress speaker told reporters when asked about the latest political developments in the eastern state.

A Jharkhand Congress Legislative Party meeting is due to be held at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Party official Avinash Pande will chair the meeting.

According to reports, Governor Ramesh Bais is likely to send a disqualification order for Soren as an MP to the Election Commission of India (ECI) on Saturday.
