I work for the people: Soren

Ranchi: Keeping everyone guessing about his intentions on the formation of a new government in Jharkhand, JMM chief Shibu Soren on Thursday said that he "worked for the people as a social worker and not as a politician."

"I work for the people... I don't go to anybody nor do I call anybody," Soren told a news agency apparently referring to the lingering stalemate over the vexed issue of government formation.

He evaded giving a clear reply on the BJP's insistence of heading the government for the remaining four-and-a-half year term and his party's demand for a rotational government.

"Jharkhand was destined to be created, and I have struggled hard for this... but things did not happen as desired," the JMM chief, popularly known as Guruji, said.
