New Delhi: BJP president Amit Shah has invited JD (U) president Nitish Kumar to join the ruling NDA. The invitation comes after they met in the national capital last evening.
“I met JD-U president Nitish Kumar at my residence yesterday. I invited JD-U to join the NDA,” Shah said in a tweet today.
Barely a fortnight ago, Nitish Kumar snapped ties with Lalu Yadav’s RJD and joined hands with the saffron party in Bihar to form a new government.
The Bihar-based party is expected to endorse a proposal to join the NDA in its national executive meeting in Patna on August 19, after which it is likely to join the Narendra Modi cabinet.
