PM Narendra Modi, in spite of being the Deputy CM for over 10 years under Bihar CM Nitish Kumar in Bihar was not named to that position after the National Democratic Alliance won the ongoing Assembly polls in Bihar.

Chirag Paswan had demanded all through his rally that he wished to get together with the BJP to form the govt in Bihar.
