Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren Tuesday dismissed his Rural Works Minister Simon Marandi from his cabinet.

His recommendation to dismiss Marandi has been approved by Governor Syed Ahmed, a Raj Bhavan communique said here.

The reason behind the dismissal was not spelt out.
He held the portfolios of Food, Public Distribution and Consumer Affairs as well.

Marandi had allegedly levelled certain charges against the party leadership ahead of Lok Sabha polls in Dumka.
