Jharkhand Mukti Morcha leader Hemant Soren is all set to take oath as state's Chief Minister once again. This development comes after a crucial all-party meeting of India Bloc MLAs held at Hemant Soren's residence in Ranchi, convened by former Jharkhand CM on Wednesday.

According to media reports, following the development at the Hemant Soren's residence in Ranchi, the incumbent CM, Champai Soren, is expected to tender his resignation anytime soon.

Before the legislative party meeting, there was speculation surrounding the possibility of Hemant Soren's wife, Kalpana, being sworn in as Jharkhand CM.

The speculation about a change of guard in Jharkhand was fuelled by the sudden cancellation of all important programmes of Chief Minister Champai Soren, including the distribution of appointment letters to 1,500 selected teachers on Wednesday.

Ranchi High Court granted bail to the former Jharkhand CM on June 28, after his arrest in a money laundering case related to an alleged land scam five months ago. He came out of jail on the same day.

Soren was lodged in the Birsa Munda Jail.

He was arrested by the ED on January 31 from the Ranchi Raj Bhavan, minutes after he resigned as chief minister.
