"They (BJP) think they can end our political careers by putting me in jail and levelling accusations? Neither our image will be tarnished nor our political power will decrease. Currently we are at 52 in terms of support from MLAs but next time we'll come with 75," Soren said.
On Wednesday, the Enforcement Directorate issued a fresh summons to Soren to appear before it in Ranchi on November 17 for questioning in a money laundering case linked to alleged illegal mining in the state.
