Soren said when people were forced to remain in the confines of their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic it had become a challenge for a backward state like Jharkhand, from where a large number of labourers hail.
On World Tribal Day, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said that the state government is providing farmers with machinery and farming equipment worth Rs 734 crores.
Reacting to the charge, Jharkhand BJP chief Deepak Prakash has dared the Soren government to arrest him within the next 24 hours.

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.

Soren is set to helm the government for the second time as he was projected as the CM candidate of the JMM-Congress-RJD alliance.
'This will be my defeat, not the Bharatiya Janata Party's,' said Raghubar Das.
Coming close on the heels of the Maharashtra and Haryana assembly elections and months ahead of the Delhi assembly polls, the Jharkhand result has shown that the BJP’s cloak of electoral invincibility is slipping.
Political analysts say it took a while for Hemant Soren to come out of the shadows of his father, Shibu Soren.
Jharkhand is the fifth state -- after Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhatisgarh and Maharashtra in the last one year -- where the power has slipped out of its hands.
BJP’s focus on national issues like Article 370, Ram Mandir and Citizenship Act is not cutting ice with the voters – perhaps even backfiring.
The Shiv Sena also said the poll result trends show people are not buying BJP's politics based on sentimental issues like the NRC.
