Symbolic participation not accepted, standing firmly with govt: Nitish

Nitish Kumar has said that his Janata Dal-United will not join Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new government. "The offer we got was not acceptable," the Bihar CM told reporters. “They (BJP) wanted only 1 person from JDU in the cabinet, so it would have been just symbolic participation. It is not a big issue; we are fully in NDA and not upset at all. We are working together, no confusion,” he added.
