Tuesday will see the growth of the new government's cabinet after Nitish Kumar took the oath of office as Bihar's chief minister for the ninth time, along with a new deputy - Tejashwi Yadav of the RJD. Last week, Kumar unexpectedly ended his alliance with the BJP, which has been in office with him since the coalition's election to charge in 2020.
According to HT, the Nitish-Tejashwi cabinet is likely to grow with a focus on lower castes. The action is probably going to be taken in accordance with what the base of voters expects.
The BJP is scheduled to have a strategy meeting in Delhi on the day when the Bihar cabinet is expanded. JP Nadda, the president of the BJP, will preside over the meeting with the core committee.
The expansion of the cabinet in Bihar comes shortly after that in Maharashtra, when Eknath Shinde's rebellion against Uddhav Thackeray and his alliance with the BJP caused the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress administration to crumble.
The state assembly has 243 members in total, and the cabinet can include a maximum of 36 ministers.
