Soren accuses centre for misusing govt agencies
Earlier today, while targeting the opposition Soren said that after four-time facing defeat in the election center is using government agencies in the wrong way.
"I've been summoned by ED today when I already have a program in Chhattisgarh today. If I've committed a crime that big, come & arrest me. Why the questioning?... Security near ED office has increased. Why, are you scared of Jharkhandis? said the Jharkhand CM.
"This is their frustration. Every single voter of Jharkhand will give a reply to the opposition," he added.
