Jharkhand chief minister-designate and working president of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) Hemant Soren on Wednesday invited Congress president Sonia Gandhi and senior leader Rahul Gandhi for his swearing-in ceremony scheduled to take place in Ranchi on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, the JMM-led alliance, comprising the Congress and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), staked claim to form the government in the state, with support from 50 legislators, including three Jharkhand Vikas Morcha MLAs.

Subsequently, Jharkhand governor Droupadi Murmu formally invited Soren to form the government.

“I met Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and invited them for the swearing in...This alliance will work strongly for five years and there is no doubt about it,” Soren told reporters after the meeting.

He added that other Opposition leaders will be reached out but details are yet to disclosed. Soren said that both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah will also be invited to the ceremony.
