Jharkhand Election Results Updates: JMM’s Hemant Soren Will be CM as Alliance Touches Majority Mark, Says Congress
New Delhi: The Congress-JMM alliance, which is just inches away from the majority mark of 41, says it should be invited first by Governor Draupadi Murmu over the BJP.
Meanwhile, reports says, the Congress is also in touch with Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik), which, along with AJSU, is eyeing kingmaker role in the 81-seat Assembly.
The battle for the Jharkhand chief minister seat is mainly between incumbent Raghubar Das, who is leading from Jamshedpur East, and JMM leader Hemant Soren, the son of Shibu Soren, who is leading from Barhait, but trailing from Dumka.
Workers and supporters of the Congress, JMM and the RJD break out in celebrations as the alliance is on track to stake claim to form the government in Jharkhand.
