Listen to the news
This simply means that the BJP will now have to fulfill the main responsibility of meeting the expectations of the people on these issues. Especially with the creation of nineteen lakh new jobs in the state, BJP will be responsible for increasing the revenue of the state. It is noteworthy that these issues pushed Nitish and JDU on the backfoot in this election.
At the same time, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, like the BJP, has placed a bet on the Mahadalit class with backward and extreme backward. All the ministers of the party are from these sections. It is clear that JDU also has a strategy to move ahead by saving its old vote bank like BJP. By keeping the Home Department with him as before, Nitish has given the message to continue taking responsibility of law and order himself.
BJP has mostly old departments
In the new government, most of the old departments of BJP have come. For example, Tarkishore Prasad, who was appointed Deputy Chief Minister, has got other departments including Finance of the outgoing Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi. The party has got departments like road construction, health, backward-ultra backward, agriculture, tourism, city development, art and culture as before. Mangal Pandey of BJP has been given Health, Arts and Culture and Road Construction Department. He was also the Minister of Health before this. Amarendra Pratap Singh has been given the responsibility of Agriculture, Cooperative and Sugarcane Department. Rampreet Paswan has been given the responsibility of PHED Department, Jeevesh Kumar has been given the responsibility of Tourism, Labor and Mining Department and Ram Sundar Kumar has been given the responsibility of Revenue and Law Department.
