Amit Shah formally invites Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) to join NDA


New Delhi, Aug 12: BJP president Amit Shah has invited Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar to join the ruling NDA, following the latter's alliance with the saffron party in the state to form a new government.

"I met JD(U) president Nitish Kumar at my residence yesterday. I invited JD(U) to join the NDA," Shah said in a tweet on Saturday.

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.

JD(U) spokesperson K C Tyagi said, “On August 19, we will take a formal decision to join NDA and decision regarding Nitish Kumar becoming the national convener of NDA will be taken at the national executive meet of JD(U) in Patna.”

Asked if the party would join the Modi cabinet, a JD(U) leader said such a decision would be "natural".

"When we are together in government in Bihar, it is only natural that our party joins the Union government," he said.
