Ranchi. Finally Chief Minister Hemant Soren approached the Jharkhand High Court. A petition challenging the ED summons was filed in the Jharkhand High Court on Saturday by the Chief Minister. In such a situation, when the Chief Minister reached the ED office, suspense remained. At the same time, chances are high that the Chief Minister may not visit the ED office once again. However, tight security has been deployed outside the ED office.
Let us tell you that ED has issued summons to Chief Minister Hemant Soren four times so far. The first time, CM Hemant Soren was called for questioning on August 14, the second time on August 24 and the third time on September 9. Following this, Chief Minister Hemant Soren was summoned for questioning for the fourth time on September 23. But, on behalf of the Chief Minister’s lawyer, a petition was filed in the Jharkhand High Court on Saturday, September 23, challenging the ED summons.
In fact, on September 22 there was talk of the Chief Minister himself filing a petition in the Jharkhand High Court. But, due to the death of High Court Justice KP Dev, a holiday was declared in the Jharkhand High Court on September 22, due to which the petition could not be filed. Politics also intensified over Chief Minister Hemant Soren’s fourth summons and visit to the ED office. Ruling JMM central spokesperson Manoj Pandey said that it is Chief Minister Hemant Soren’s personal decision to visit the ED office or not. He said that the Chief Minister is regularly consulting legal experts in this regard. A JMM spokesperson said, ‘The Chief Minister is not a common man who can be called to the ED office whenever he wants.
Jharkhand Mukti Morcha’s Central Spokesperson Manoj Pandey responded to this statement by BJP. State BJP spokesperson Pratul Shahdev asked if the chief minister is not a common man, is there a separate law for special persons? BJP spokesperson Pratul Shahdev said that the era of kings and states is over.
