The expansion of the Hemant Soren ministry slated for Friday has been postponed following a request of the chief minister, Raj Bhavan sources said earlier. "The cabinet expansion has been postponed on the request of the chief minister. A new date has not been set as the CM has to recommend another date," they said.
Soren called on Governor Droupadi Murmu and urged her to postpone Friday's programme as his mind is "grief-stricken" at the killing of seven villagers at Burugulikera by "Pathalgarhi" movement supporters.
Curfew has been imposed in Jharkhand’s Lohardaga district following violence at a pro-CAA rally on Thursday, an official statement said. Stones were hurled at a rally taken out in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Amlatoli Chowk area, sparking tensions, police said.
Some two-wheelers were set on fire following the attack, they said. Curfew has been imposed in the entire district in the wake of law and order problems, the statement said on Friday.

The administration has urged people to inform about any untoward situation at 06526-222513 or 100. Security has been beefed up across the district following the incident, police said.
