PATNA: In a curious development, the ruling JD-U in Bihar headed by chief minister Nitish Kumar is yet to get invitation to join the Narendra Modi cabinet.
A major reshuffle in the Narendra Modi cabinet is expected to take place tomorrow just before the Prime Minister leaves for China to attend BRICS summit.
“We have no information, no talks about it (Cabinet reshuffle). We got information only from media,” Kumar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI on Saturday afternoon.

The development comes amid speculations that at least two leaders from the JD-U are expected to join the Modi cabinet.
The local media, for the past few days, had been strongly debating about who are the probables likely to join the Modi cabinet.
Kumar-led JD-U has joined the NDA only last month after pulling itself out of the ruling Grand Alliance and then forming government with the BJP in Bihar.
