Chief Minister Hemant Soren was felicitated with ‘Champion of Change Award – 2019’ for better and exemplary work as a people's representative in Barhait and Dumka Assembly Constituencies of Jharkhand in New Delhi on Monday. Former President of India Pranab Mukherjee honoured Soren at a ceremony held at the residence of the former President.
After receiving the award the CM dedicated it to the people of the State and Dishom Guru Shibu Soren. “Our State is a Sone ki Chidiya(Golden Bird) because more than 40 per cent of mineral reserves of the country are here in Jharkhand.
From these mineral resources many states get employment opportunities and are brightened. And, on the other hand our State is devoid of several basic amenities,” he said at the award ceremony. “Our State is tribal dominated. The benefits of development schemes and programmes are somehow not reaching the needy persons of the State,” said the CM, adding that the purpose for which the people of the State have chosen him, he will try his best to fulfil the aspirations of the people.
