It says Chief Minister Nitish Kumar (Nitish Kumar) Nitish Kumar made it clear on Tuesday Bharatiya Janata Party Talks will be held for the expansion of the Council of Ministers.

Nitish Kumar’s statement has a clear meaning that the BJP’s central leadership is not in a hurry to expand the ministry. Therefore, the expansion of Nitish’s cabinet has been stopped. However, the BJP has ruled out the possibility of appointing former senior ministers like Nanda Kishore Yadav or Binod Narayan Jha to the assembly committee. Similarly, Janata Dal United also clarified that some of its senior leaders like Narendra Narayan Yadav and Damodar Rawat are coordinators in the assembly committee and now it will give a chance to a new person.

However, it is believed that there is no confusion between the BJP and Nitish Kumar over the number of representatives in the cabinet. But there is still controversy over how much to give in the changed political situation of the 12 members nominated by the governor’s quota.
