BJP president Amit Shah has invited Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar to join the ruling NDA. In a tweet today, Mr Shah said, he met Mr Kumar yesterday and invited JD(U) to join the NDA.
The JD(U) is expected to endorse a proposal to join the NDA in its national executive meeting in Patna on August 19. Asked if the party will join the Modi cabinet, a JD(U) leader said such a decision would be natural.
He said, when we are together in government in Bihar, it is only natural that our party joins the Union government.
After snapping his ties with Lalu Prasad led RJD, Nitish Kumar entered into alliance with BJP to form a new government in Bihar on the 27th of last month.
