There are chances that Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren may contest the upcoming Assembly elections from Barhet constituency along with his Dumka seat.
The possibility of him fighting from two seats arises out of the fact that the party has still not announced the name of its candidate from Barhet constituency. This has increased the prospects of Soren ultimately being the party’s face from here.
Party supremo Shibu Soren has told reporters in Ranchi that they would soon announce the decision on Barhet candidate.
Notably, reports have also suggested that Shibu Soren may field his younger son Basant from Barhet instead of Hemant Soren.
