Henceforth, there will ot be any rule or step that would create problems for the people of this state.�

Decisions would be taken with the interests of tribals and Jharkhandis uppermost in consideration. �No person will die of hunger in Jharkhand. The stigma that has come in the last five years has to be wiped off. Ever since the swearing-in, the people of the state have revived their aspirations and expectations from this government. It will be the endeavor of the government that work will be done in the interest of this state and the people here. Every step undertaken will be to ensure the respect of Jharkhand, to find a better path for the coming generations, for the safety of our mothers, sisters and daughters, and for a solid education system.�
Soren stated, �We gather here at the Martyrs� Memorial in Kharsawan every year. Jharkhand definitely is a martyrs� state. Whatever moves the government makes would be in conformity with the dreams and ideals of the martyrs. Despite our state being backward, our people fought a long battle against the exploiting classes. The people of the entire state today, have entrusted responsibilities with the new government and though this huge responsibility is a challenge, it is not insurmountable and together we will certainly come out blazing.�
