All legislators belonging to the ruling alliance led by the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) in Jharkhand have been instructed to stay in the state capital, Ranchi. The directive comes ahead of a scheduled meeting on Tuesday to address the ongoing political scenario in the state.
The primary agenda of the meeting, proposed at the Chief Minister's House, is to formulate a strategy in response to the current political situation and the anticipated questioning of Chief Minister Hemant Soren by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday.
In response to the ED's summons, Chief Minister Hemant Soren communicated his willingness to record his statement on January 31 at 1 pm at his residence in an email sent to the agency. JMM's general secretary and spokesperson, Vinod Kumar Pandey, confirmed that all legislators from the ruling alliance, including the JMM, Congress, and RJD, have been instructed to stay in Ranchi during this critical period.
Pandey further stated that the legislators would convene on Tuesday to discuss the future course of action in response to the evolving political situation. When questioned about the Chief Minister's return to Ranchi, Pandey expressed uncertainty. Notably, ruling party legislators had gathered at the Chief Minister's residence until late Monday night following the visit of the ED team to Soren's residence in Delhi. The situation remains tense, and political discussions are underway to address the challenges faced by the ruling alliance in Jharkhand.
