Disheartened by the removal of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren's portrait from her classroom, a seventh-grade student at CM Excellence School in Palamu district expressed her disappointment in a letter to him. Thirteen-year-old Manisha, impressed by Soren's efforts to improve education during his tenure, was dismayed to find his portrait missing from the wall.

Letter to former CM

Her handwritten letter to the former CM went viral on social media, sparking discussions in the town. Sub-divisional magistrate Anurag Kumar Tiwary said the local administration had not received any video regarding the incident but promised to investigate further if necessary. Principal Karunand Tiwary noted that many students and parents appreciated Soren's educational initiatives, including free schooling for the underprivileged.

Manisha, a resident of Kanni Ram Chowk, attends classes regularly, and her parents also hold Soren in high regard for his contributions, despite his current custody by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case related to an alleged land scam.

On entering the classroom three days ago, 13-year-old girl Manisha, who was impressed with the initiative undertaken by Soren on the education front during his tenure, was unhappy on finding Soren's portrait removed from the wall and expressed her angst through a handwritten letter to the former CM. The matter has become the topic of discussion in the town after the letter went viral on social media. When contacted, the sub-divisional magistrate (Medininagar) Anurag Kumar Tiwary told PTI no such video has come to the local administration's notice, but assured to investigate if it was a special incident.

Principal reacted to the situation

Principal Karunand Tiwary said a big chunk of students and their guardians were very much influenced with the concrete programmes undertaken by Soren on the education front including free schooling of the poor. A resident of Kanni Ram Chowk here, Manisha attends classes regularly and her parents were also very much grateful to former CM, currently under custody of Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case linked to an alleged land scam.
