    This will be Soren's second stint as the chief minister of the tribal state. His first had lasted for just about 14 months since July 15 2013. With support from his allies - the Congress and the RJD - Soren, who had been the face of the coalition, stormed to power, as his party alone won 30 Assembly seats, its highest tally ever.

    In the just-conducted assembly elections, the JMM-Congress-Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) alliance triumphed over the BJP, winning 47 seats in the 81-member House. It is the second term for Hemant Soren, who had been a deputy chief minister and chief minister between 2009 and 2013.

    The swearing-in ceremony took place at Morabadi ground in Ranchi at 2 p.m. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, were present among others on the occasion. Along with Hemant Soren, 3 other MLAs also took oath as ministers.

    The winning alliance has already sent invitations to several chief ministers and national leaders, sources said.

    Soren, who was projected as the chief ministerial candidate of the JMM-Congress-RJD alliance, is likely to visit New Delhi later with AICC in-charge of Jharkhand, RPN Singh to meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi before staking claim to form the government, sources said.

    With top opposition leaders of the country scheduled to attend the programme, Soren's swearing-in ceremony is likely to be a "show of unity" in the wake of countrywide protests against the amended Citizenship Act and the proposed pan-India NRC.

    His first stint as chief minister of the tribal state had lasted for just about 14 months since July 15 2013. But this time, he with support from his allies - the Congress and the RJD have stopped the seemingly invincible BJP. Hemant Soren had been the face of the opposition alliance in the state.
