Nitish Kumar 'Disappointed' With Cabinet Reshuffle, Say Sources

Houston Facing Similar Situation Sena's Defence on BMC Mumbai Rains Failure

On Saturday, Bihar Chief Minister maintained that they had no intimation about the reshuffle.

Meanwhile, the Janata Dal United (JD (U)) also clarified today that no one from the party was joining Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new team.

"BJP-led National Democratic Alliance exists only on paper".

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had earlier said that the JD (U) had no talks with the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Centre on his party joining the Cabinet. "The cards of the cabinet could have easily been reshuffled even after Modi's trip", the Shiv Sena said. It is for the BJP to decide if they want to consult old alliance partners on crucial issues or not.

Sanjay Raut says that the BJP always remembers the junior ally when it needs As the Narendra Modi government went in for a cabinet reshuffle, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said on Sunday that the NDA is "almost dead" and that BJP remembers it only when it needs some support. "It is restricted to only meetings of allied parties", Raut said.

"BJP remembers its alliance partners only for its need".

The JD (U), which joined the NDA few weeks ago, was expecting a call to get at least two of its members being included in the Union Cabinet.

The stress on performance in Sunday's Cabinet reshuffle is matched by the BJP's growing confidence in winning elections without its allies and constantly worrying about caste considerations. Prime Minister Modi will reshuffle his Cabinet on Sunday at 10.30 a.m. before leaving for China to attend the BRICS Summit.

In two of the nine major changes in the Cabinet, Union Minister Piyush Goyal has been given the charge of Railway Ministry, while Nirmala Sitharaman has been assigned the charge of the Defence Ministry, making her only the second woman to hold the post since late Indira Gandhi.

He also taunted the BJP about its "arrogance" over having a majority in the Lok Sabha. When asked about the Sena's absence, Mr Raut said, "We are not hungry for power".
