Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren wins trust vote, BJP stages walkout

Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Monday came up smiling after winning the important trust vote.

Hemant Soren's fate was hanging in balance over the threat of disqualification in an office of profit case.

Soren got 48 votes, while the BJP walked out during the House proceedings.

Earlier in the day, Hemant Soren tabled a confidence motion in the Jharkhand Assembly.

He claimed that the BJP was attempting to poach UPA MLAs, which prompted him to take the step.

The Chief Minister lambasted the BJP for creating uncertainty in the state.

Speaking on the motion, Soren said, "BJP wants to create division in the state and instill fear but till the UPA government is in place the BJP's plan will not succeed."

A majority of the UPA MLAs were sent to Raipur and arrived in Ranchi on Sunday evening amid a threat of poaching.

Soren's government is running with the support of Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal.
