Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar had earlier said that the JD (U) had no talks with the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Centre on his party joining the Cabinet.

“We have no information about the Cabinet reshuffle. We didn’t have any talks on it. We got the information about this from the media,” Nitish told the reporters.

Contrary to this, reports had earlier quoted that JD (U) leaders RCP Singh and Ramnath Thakur were likely to be inducted into the Union Cabinet this morning.

The Shiv Sena has said at the last minute that the party was not happy with the Union Cabinet reshuffle and thereby, would not attend the oath ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi.

The Sena is reportedly dispirited over not been given even a single berth in the cabinet expansion.

Prime Minister Modi will reshuffle his Cabinet on Sunday at 10.30 a.m. before leaving for China to attend the BRICS Summit.

Several Cabinet ministers have already stepped down from their posts, viz. Bandaru Dattatreya, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Sanjeev Baliyan and Faggan Singh Kulaste.
