"We are behind Soren like a rock. Not only will our (nine) MLAs support him on the floor of the House but we will also make efforts to make him the chief minister," AICC secretary Abdul Manan had said in Ranchi on Thursday, Aug 21.

Two suspended BJP MLAs, Vishnu Bhayya and Manohar Tekriwal, have also favoured the JMM leader's bid for chief ministership. Both Bhayya and Tekriwal had been suspended for siding with former chief minister Babulal Marandi.
