He went to climb up the ladder to become chief minister.But in the process ex Deputy CM Hemant Soren lost his seat of power.
A few days back he moved around in Ford Endeavour with a security escort.Then,he toppled the 28-month old Arjun Munda government on January 8,went to Delhi,talked to the Congress leaders and actively engaged himself exploring a government backed by the RJD,Independents and the Congress.
