Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief Hemant Soren has decided to withdraw his complaint against BJP leader and acting Jharkhand CM Raghubar Das under the SC-ST Act. Soren had filed the complaint at Mihijam police station after Das had used abusive language against him in an election rally in Jamtara assembly constituency on December 18. On Wednesday, an FIR was registered in the case.

Hemant Soren said, "During the course of the election every political party was aggressive and all of us fought very hard. I had lodged a complaint case against Raghubar Das Ji which I have decided to withdraw because I feel I want to move ahead with a positive approach with the intention to develop Jharkhand and opposition parties also have an important role to play. I do not want to indulge in vendetta politics," Soren told reporters on Thursday.
