The meeting takes place at a time when the JMM is divided over whether to support the BJP’s presidential nominee and when cracks have appeared in its alliance with the Congress.

Governor Ramesh Bais referred the matter to the Election Commission of India (ECI), which has the authority to remove Soren from office.

There are also PILs in the High Court requesting that central agencies investigate the CM for alleged irregularities in mining allotments.
