Encounter Champai Soren: Jharkhand’s ‘Feline’
Champai Soren, a participant of the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly and an MLA from the Saraikela constituency, emerges as a distinguished personality in Jharkhand’s political arena. Acknowledged as the ‘Jharkhand Panther,’ his involvement in the Jharkhand campaign, alongside Shibu Soren, has earned him this distinct appellation.

His duties as a Cabinet Minister encompassed pivotal sectors such as Transport, Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes, and Backward Class Welfare.
