Soren 'hurt' with hooting down
Ranchi, Aug 22: Hemant Soren, the chief minister of Jharkhand, too face the ire of the public during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's function. He was hooted out. But, like his Maharashtra and Haryana counterparts, he too did not take it with bowed heads.

Calling it a "rape of democracy", Soren's party Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) demanded a public apology from Modi.

He further said,"The unseemly and disrespectful approach during my speech is rape of the democratic system. This way democracy will crumble. What will happen to it?"

The public even ignored the Prime Minister's wave for restraint when Soren came to speak on the occasion of unveiling of a slew of developmental projects by the PM at Prabhat Tara Ground at Dhurwa area here.

JMM meanwhile demanded an apology from Modi for hooting by "BJP workers" and threatened to protest every time a central minister visited the state.

A JMM release said,"The JMM demands from the Prime Minister to give up the desire to abrogate federal system for being individual-centric and render a public apology.
