As per the law,Soren who was sworn in as ninth CM by Governor Syed Ahmad on July 13,has to table the motion seeking confidence of the majority of members present and voting and win it on the floor of the House tomorrow.
If he wins,Soren will continue to remain saddled on the prestigious seat of the CM.And in case,he fails,his five- day old government will fall.
In the 82 member Jharkhand Assembly,Soren is being supported by 43 MLAs(JMM- 18;,Congress- 13;RJD -5;and Independent and small parties-7).All of them are expected to vote in his favour.
Now,the efforts were being made to increase the number of support in his favour.
At the other end,the Opposition with the strength of 39 MLAs(BJP-18;JVM-11,AJSU-6;JD-U-2;CPI-ML-1;Nominated-1 ),there appears to be no unanimity.It is not clear whether CPI(ML)’s Binod Singh will oppose the trust move tabled by Soren or abstain from voting.
In any case,the ruling coalition partners including the Independents stand united in favour of Soren.This makes the scenario in favour of Soren.
