The Chief Minister of Bihar, Shri Nitish Kumar.

In the cabinet expansion, just one ministry was given to alliance partner Janata Dal-United (JDU). Only Ram Chandra Prasad Singh (RCP Singh) was inducted and given the steel ministry, but Nitish Kumar did not congratulate him publicly on social media.

As per the trend in Indian politics these days, after every development including the birthday of the leader, a flurry of congratulatory messages hit social media like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc. Nitish Kumar, a day after RCP Singh become a Union minister, has so far not posted any congratulatory message for him on social media.

Political analysts believe that the JDU wanted at least 2 cabinet minister posts -- one for RCP Singh and another for Nitish Kumar's closest aide Lalan Singh. As Modi has included just RCP Singh, he did not want Lalan Singh to get angry.

"At present, RCP Singh is holding the post of national president of JDU while Lalan Singh is the MP from Munger. These two are the closest aides of Nitish Kumar. They are supposed to be occupying the number 2 slots in the party. There is a political rivalry between them and Nitish Kumar does not want any of them to get angry. Lalan Singh was the one who was reportedly instrumental in breaking the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP)," said a JDU senior leader who requested anonymity.

"Nitish Kumar may have congratulated RCP Singh personally but has not expressed the same publicly," he said.

RCP Singh has already given a statement about Lalan Singh and said: "There is no difference between Lalan Singh and me. He is the senior leader of the party."

"There is a buzz inside the JDU that RCP Singh was given the responsibility to bargain with the BJP to bag at least two cabinet ministers' posts and two posts of a state minister. But Singh failed and just got one ministry for himself," another senior leader said.

He added that if the JDU needed only one post then why did it not accept it in 2019? Why did it delay for two years? Meanwhile, supporters of the JDU and RCP Singh have put up new posters and banners at the CM's residence, the JDU office, and other places in Patna to congratulate Singh. (IANS/KB)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
