    In the just-conducted assembly elections, the JMM-Congress-Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) alliance triumphed over the BJP, winning 47 seats in the 81-member House. It is the second term for Hemant Soren, who had been a deputy chief minister and chief minister between 2009 and 2013.

    This will be Soren's second stint as the chief minister of the tribal state. His first had lasted for just about 14 months since July 15 2013. With support from his allies - the Congress and the RJD - Soren, who had been the face of the coalition, stormed to power, as his party alone won 30 Assembly seats, its highest tally ever.

    The swearing-in ceremony took place at Morabadi ground in Ranchi at 2 p.m. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, were present among others on the occasion. Along with Hemant Soren, 3 other MLAs also took oath as ministers.

    The alliance, which has won 47 seats in the 81-member house in the November-December Assembly election, has also secured support of former ally, the Jharkhand Vikas Morcha-Prajatantrik. Hemant Soren was elected leader of the alliance at a meeting with the alliance MLAs at the residence of his father and JMM President Shibu Soren on Tuesday night.

    Soren, who was projected as the chief ministerial candidate of the JMM-Congress-RJD alliance, is likely to visit New Delhi later with AICC in-charge of Jharkhand, RPN Singh to meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi before staking claim to form the government, sources said.

    The winning alliance has already sent invitations to several chief ministers and national leaders, sources said.

    His first stint as chief minister of the tribal state had lasted for just about 14 months since July 15 2013. But this time, he with support from his allies - the Congress and the RJD have stopped the seemingly invincible BJP. Hemant Soren had been the face of the opposition alliance in the state.

    With top opposition leaders of the country scheduled to attend the programme, Soren's swearing-in ceremony is likely to be a "show of unity" in the wake of countrywide protests against the amended Citizenship Act and the proposed pan-India NRC.

    Chief Minister Hemant Soren proposed Mahato's name for the post which was seconded by JMM MLA Champai Soren during the second of the three-day session of the Assembly.
