Jharkhand: Governor invites Soren to form govt

Last updated on: December 27, 2009 17:49 IST

Jharkhand Governor K Sankarananaryanan on Sunday invited JMM chief Shibu Soren to form the new government in Jharkhand.

After Soren met the Governor for 10 minutes, the latter asked him to take the oath on December 30 at 2 pm, Raj Bhavan sources said.

The JMM supremo, along with the BJP-LP leader Raghubar Das and AJSU-LP head Sudesh Mahto, had on Saturday called on the Governor and submitted letters of support of 42 MLAs in the 81-member House.

Later, last night, the figure swelled to 44 after the JD-U also handed over a letter of support of its two MLAs (to JMM) to the governor.
