Champai Soren emerged victorious in the trust vote held in the Jharkhand Assembly, securing 47 votes in favor of the ruling party. The floor test, initiated to discuss the current situation of the ruling party and reasons behind seeking the vote of confidence, saw the All Jharkhand Students Union chief, Sudesh Mahto, expressing his stance.

Jharkhand Students Union chief Sudesh Mahto said "We will discuss the current situation of the ruling party and debate the reasons behind seeking the floor test. There was no need to do this (relocation of ruling MLAs). No efforts were being made (by the opposition)."

Meanwhile, former Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren accused Governor CP Radhakrishnan of involvement in his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate the previous week. Addressing the Jharkhand Assembly, Soren challenged the Centre to produce documents proving his connection to the alleged ₹8 crore land scam, emphasizing that if proven, he would quit politics. Soren questioned the timing and motives behind his arrest, asserting that the opposition had an issue with an Adivasi holding the CM post and accused them of targeting him for traveling in planes, using BMW cars, and staying in 5-star hotels.

“Hemant hai to himmat hai (If Hemant Soren is there we have courage) and The Adivasis and moolvasis of Jharkhand suffered from economic, social suppression. Hemant babu thought of them. He linked all people deprived to welfare schemes. 'ye kya gunaah hai kya' (is this a crime),” CM Champai Soren addresses Jharkhand Assembly.
