New Delhi, January 30
The BJP had invited Lok Janshakti Party president Chirag Paswan to attend the NDA meeting on Saturday to discuss the ruling bloc’s agenda for the Budget session of Parliament, but the JD(U)’s protest to the move is likely to have prompted him to skip the event.
LJP sources said Chirag did not attend the virtual meeting due to health reasons, and noted he had also skipped the all-party meet held earlier in the day.
The invite to Chirag assumes significance as this made it clear that the LJP remains a member of the NDA despite walking out of the alliance in Bihar during the Assembly polls. PTI
