Bihar CM Nitish Kumar Hosts Tea Party for his Guests
BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu was conspicuous by his absence.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday hosted a tea party for all guests who attended his swearing-in ceremony but no BJP representative was present at the party.
Among those who attended Kumar’s tea party held at his official residence were Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, chief ministers Mamata Banerjee and Arvind Kejriwal, RJD chief Lalu Prasad, former prime minister HD Devegowda, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, JD(U) President Sharad Yadav and CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury.
However, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu, who attended Kumar’s oath-taking after being deputed by PM Modi, was conspicuous by his absence at the tea party. He had left for the airport straight from the venue of the swearing-in function. Kumar personally received each guest and saw them off after the nearly hour-long tea party.
