RANCHI: Former Chief Minister Hemant Soren, who is currently lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail in Ranchi after being arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case linked to land scam on January 31, will study the Constitution of India and other books related to Economy and Jharkhand Movement.

Hemant Soren’s wife Kalpana Soren revealed on social platform X that she has been asked by her husband to bring those books on Sunday while visiting him in the jail on Saturday.

The three books which Hemant Soren wish to study in jail includes – Constitution of India by Durga Das Basu, ‘Jharkhand Andolan Ka Dastawej: Shoshan Sangharsh aur Shahadat’ by Anuj Kumar Sinha and ‘Poor Economics’ by Abhijit V Banerjee and Esther.

According to Kalpana Soren, earlier also, Hemant Soren had asked for the books related to Jharkhand movement, Mundari, Ho and Kudukh languages among other books to read in the jail.

“Hemant ji has always been fond of reading books. He keeps his books at home with great care and love. Along with other books, he has always read books related to Jharkhand and Jharkhand movement with special interest. After taking over the reins of the state, he had appealed to the people visiting him to gift 'books, rather than giving him bouquet of flowers',” Kalpana Soren posted on X.

As a result of which, he received thousands of books in the last 4 years, she added.

Kalpana Soren informed that it has been Hemant Ji’s dream that the state should move forward in the field of education. His desire to open libraries for the poor and downtrodden in every Panchayat of the state could be seen in many places today, she said.

“Hemant Ji may get disturbed for sometime due to the vicious circle created by BJP but, how could it be able to suppress the thinking and determination of a Jharkhand warrior?” said Kalpana Soren.

The revolution of education started by Hemant ji in the state is continuously progressing. Jharkhand has learnet not to bow down, but only to move forward, she added.

Hemant Soren, after being questioning for over 7 hours, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on January 31 from his residence and is currently under judicial custody.
