Patna BJP ally Lok Janshakti Party leader and MP Chirag Paswan claimed that his father will be inducted again into the cabinet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His father and the LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan was Union Minister in the outgoing NDA Government too.

Chirag Paswan said that his father would become a member of the Rajya Sabha either from Assam or Bihar.

“My father will be inducted again into the Union Cabinet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi”, Paswan said.

Modi elected leader of BJP and NDA parliamentary party

The junior Paswan has downplayed reports that he himself is likely to be inducted into the Union Cabinet.

Flush with the Lok Sabha poll victory of the ruling National Democratic Alliance, he said the win would be repeated in the Bihar assembly polls next year.

This time, the LJP has won all six seats it contested in Bihar. LJP contested in alliance with BJP and JDU.

Ram Vilas Paswan did not contest Lok Sabha polls in 2019, which is the first such absence since 1977, when he won his first parliamentary poll from Bihar’s Hajipur.
