Ranchi, March 5: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Sunday declared solidarity to the People’s Movement launched by former Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal.
Tweeting on his social media handle Hemant Soren on Sunday said that he is ‘in complete solidarity’ of the proposed ‘people’s movement’. “It will be a long battle, but the time has come for a collective action to oppose the injustice being propagated by those in power at the Centre; and to save the democratic integrity of the country.,” he tweeted.
Starting the ‘non-electoral’ political platform, Kapil Sibal had earlier said that his aim was not political but to fight for constitutional values. Kapil Sibal has also appealed to the lawyers of the country to actively participate in this fight.
Nine months after he quit the Congress, former Union minister Kapil Sibal on Saturday launched a “non-electoral” political platform — which he framed as “a people’s movement for justice” — and sought the support of all Opposition Chief Ministers and leaders.
Addressing a press conference, Sibal had said the new platform, ‘Insaaf’, was not a political party but aimed to unitedly fight against injustice of all kinds — social, economic, political and legal — and would come up with constructive ideas and suggestions for governance. Lawyers would be at the forefront of the movement, Sibal, a lawyer himself, said.
Significantly, Kapil Sibal had fought several legal cases for the chief minister both in the Jharkhand High Court and Supreme Court in the recent past.
