JMM chief Shibu Soren is all set to take oath as Chief Minister on Wednesday heading a five-party coalition in Jharkhand.

65-year-old Soren, who had been Chief Minister of the mineral-rich State twice earlier, will take oath at 10.30 am at the historic Morabadi ground here.

Preparations were underway at Morabadi ground for the ceremony after Governor K. Sankaranarayanan invited him to form the government.

Mr. Soren, who was asked to take the floor test of his government by January eight, has not yet revealed who else would be taking oath along with him triggering speculation.

As of now, Mr. Soren, known as Guruji, will take oath along with his two deputies- Sudesh Mahato of AJSU and Raghubar Das of BJP. But this too is tentative,” a senior AJSU leader told PTI when asked how many ministers would take oath with the JMM chief.

As per the constitutional requirement, Jharkhand can have 12 ministers including the chief minister.
