Former Chief Minister of Jharkhand, Hemant Soren, is seeking High Court approval to join the ongoing Legislative Assembly budget session after being barred by a Ranchi special court. The denial was a fallout of his recent arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on January 31 in connection to a money laundering case. Soren, a prominent leader of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), contends that he has the right to partake in legislative proceedings, intensifying the legal battle.

In a strategic move, Soren’s application challenges the special court’s decision, emphasizing the pivotal role the High Court’s forthcoming ruling will play in determining his participation in the crucial budget session. The political landscape in Jharkhand is now marked by heightened intrigue as the former Chief Minister navigates legal hurdles to assert his right to engage in significant legislative affairs. The outcome of this legal maneuver holds the potential to reshape the dynamics of the current political scenario in the state.
