Hemant Soren Receives Backlash After Comment on PM Modi’s Phone Call
BJP Leader and Leader of Opposition in Jharkhand assembly Babulal Marandi has attacked CM Hemant Soren and called him a failed CM for failing to tackle Covid-19 cases in the state. The comments came after Soren in a tweet described PM Modi’s phone call to him on the Covid situation as the PM’s “Mann Ki Baat”, instead of business.
“Hemant Soren is a failed CM. Failure in governance. Failure in tackling COVID in the state. Failure to assist people. To hide his failures, he demeans the office he holds. Wake up and work, Mr. Soren. The clock is ticking,” Babulal Marandi said in response to Soren’s tweet on Friday.

Failure to assist people.
To hide his failures he demeans the office he holds.

आपका यह ट्वीट न सिर्फ़ न्यूनतम मर्यादा के ख़िलाफ़ है बल्कि उस राज्य की जनता की पीड़ा का भी मजाक़ उड़ाना है जिनका हाल जानने के लिए माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी ने फ़ोन किया था। बहुत ओछी हरकत कर दी आपने। मुख्यमंत्री पद की गरिमा भी गिरा दी https://t.co/AIm0V6uc17— Himanta Biswa Sarma (@himantabiswa) May 6, 2021
