New Delhi :

On a day when Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar extended his Cabinet by inducting eight new JDU MLAs, party secretary general KC Tyagi said that his party will never be part of NDA led Union Cabinet in future.

"The proposal that was given was unacceptable to the JDU, therefore, we have decided that in future also JDU will never be a part of the NDA led Union Cabinet, this is our final decision," Tyagi said.

The Bihar Cabinet expansion comes just two days after Janata Dal-United (JDU) chief opted out of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new government at the Centre.

There are now 33 ministers in the Nitish Kumar Cabinet, up from 25 ministers.

The newly appointed ministers are Ashok Coudhary, Shyam Rajak, Narendra Narayan Yadav, Sanjay Jha, Ramsewak Singh, Lakshmeshwar Rai Neeraj Kumar and Bima Bharti. Bima Bharti is only woman among the new ministers.

Earlier, Nitish Kumar said that his party will not join Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new government.

"The offer we got was not acceptable," the Bihar Chief Minister told reporters as he left for PM Modi's oath ceremony. “They (BJP) wanted only 1 person from JDU in the cabinet, so it would have been just a symbolic participation. We informed them that it is ok we don't need it. It is not a big issue; we are fully in NDA and not upset at all. We are working together, no confusion,” he said.
