Baripada, Apr 9:
A day after his father and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) patriarch Shibu Soren claimed his party was still a force to reckon with in Mayurbhanj, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said his Odisha counterpart Naveen Ppatnaik is facing a ‘crisis of confidence’.
Addressing election meetings in the district today, Soren said; “The Odisha chief minister has lost the confidence of his party leaders. That is why he is poaching leaders from other parties including JMM.”
The Jharkhand Chief Minister accused the Odisha government of failure to improve the condition of tribals.
