On Friday, he took a dig and said that what more can be expected from this ‘sloganveer’ government. However, the BJP immediately retaliated on this, calling him ‘Ghosnaveer’.

Taking a dig at the ‘Agneepath’ plan, Soren tweeted on Friday, “On reinstatement contract and name Agniveer! What else can be expected from this sloganeering government?!!! Wake up, the leaders of the future, wake up!!!’

Countering this, BJP’s National Vice President and former Chief Minister of the state Raghuvar Das called Hemant Soren and his government ‘Ghosnaveer’ and reminded them of the promises made by them to the people of the state. Raghuvar Das retweeted, ‘This preaching does not suit the person of declaration. Those who snatched people’s jobs by promising five lakh jobs in a year and falsely promised to give unemployment allowance are pretending to be benefactors of youth today.
