Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) leader Hemant Soren took oath as the 11th chief minister of Jharkhand Sunday at a grand ceremony attended by a galaxy of Opposition leaders. This is the second time that Soren has become the chief minister of the state.

The oath ceremony of the 44 year old tribal leader turned out an opportunity to showcase opposition unity.

Soren shared stage with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, CPM’s Sitaram Yechury, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, DMK’s MK Stalin and other opposition leaders as Governor Droupadi Murmu administered the oath of office at Ranchi’s Morabadi Ground. Former Assembly speaker and Congress leader Alamgir Alam, Jharkhand PCC president Rameshwar Oraon and RJD MLA Satyanand Bhokta were the other three ministers who took oath after Soren.

Earlier, Soren was deputy chief minister from 2010 to early 2013, and the chief minister from July 2013 to December 2014. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to congratulate Soren and assured all help for Jharkhand’s development.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi who attended the swearing-in ceremony, expressed confidence in the newly-elected coalition government. In the just-conducted Assembly elections, the JMM- Congress-RJD alliance triumphed over the BJP, winning 47 seats in the 81-member House. Four other MLAs — three from the Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) and one from the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) — have also extended support to the three-party coalition.
