Hemant Soren News: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren will appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in Ranchi today in connection with the illegal mining case. ED has called Hemant Soren for questioning. At the same time, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) party workers are preparing to protest outside the ED office against Soren's appearance. Earlier, Hemant Soren was summoned by the ED on 3 November. At that time, he refused to appear after giving information about busy schedules. After this, the time of November 17 was given by the Enforcement Directorate for question-answers.

I have sent a letter to ED: Soren

Before appearing before the ED, Hemant Soren said, "Today I have to go to the ED's office. ED is probing illegal mining in the state. I have been summoned in that context. In this regard, I have sent a letter to ED that how the mention of 1000 crore scam that has come from Sahebganj district is unfortunate.

pre trial meeting

Party legislators held a meeting at the residence of Congress Legislature Party leader Alamgir Alam on November 16, a day before Soren's appearance before the ED. The Congress MLAs said that they would together fight the present situation. After this, a meeting of the MLAs of the alliance was also held at the residence of CM Hemant Soren late in the evening.

These are the main reasons behind sending summons

Let me tell you, the main reason for issuing summons to CM Soren is his special representative Pankaj Mishra's involvement in illegal mining and amassing assets worth more than Rs 42 crore, besides several other cases. This includes the reasons for posting IAS officer Pooja Singhal, who is facing charges of money laundering, in the Mines Department, apart from the recovery of two AK-47s and 60 rounds of ammunition from Prem Prakash's house, allotted in the name of jawans deputed for the security of the Chief Minister's residence.
