The NDA government was formed in the state after Bihar’s election results about two and a half months ago, but the cabinet could not be expanded for some reasons.
Yesterday, the first expansion of the NDA’s new government cabinet took place at Raj Bhavan in Patna, with 17 new ministers assigned to them.
The swearing-in ceremony was attended by Chief Minister of State Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Tarkishore Prasad, Deputy Chief Minister Renu Devi, former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi and several leaders.
During the swearing-in ceremony, these 17 ministers were entrusted with the work of different departments of the state. Of these 17 ministers, 9 ministers belong to the Bharatiya Janata Party while 8 ministers belong to the Janata Dal United.
Three ministers are the most inducted in Gopalganj. Young leaders also had the opportunity as part of this expansion of the Nitish government cabinet, Jayant Raj is the youngest minister, while Sumit is the second and Nitin is the third youngest cabinet minister.
