Accompanied by leaders of alliance partners — the Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) – Hemant Soren met Governor Draupadi Murmu at Raj Bhawan on Tuesday (December 24) and staked claim to form the government after the alliance collectively bagged 47 seats with JMM emerging as the single-largest party in Jharkhand Assembly polls.

A day after staking claim to form the government in Jharkhand, Hemant Soren met Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi and invited her for his swearing-in ceremony on Sunday. After meeting Sonia Gandhi, Hemant Soren said the JMM-Congress-RJD coalition will provide a stable government that would last a full five-year term.
