In 2010, the chief minister had cancelled the feast after the BJP, during its executive body meeting in Patna, carried an advertisement in newspapers showing chief minister Kumar clasping hands with the Narendra Modi, then chief minister of Gujarat.

There has been a long practice of organizing a feast for the lawmakers at the end of the budget session, as per reports.

Earlier during the Makar Sankranti, the JD-U had invited the BJP leaders at its feast but it got cancelled after 17 people were killed in boat mishap in Patna.
