Patna, June 03: The relationship between the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and BJP is becoming an uncomfortable one. The JD(U) had opted out of the Modi government after being offered just one portfolio.

Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar had however said that there is no trouble with the BJP and his party would remain with the NDA. On Sunday Kumar expanded his council of ministers. He kept eight for the JD(U), while giving just one for the BJP. The BJP is yet to decide on which MLA would take up the post.

On the other hand Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi arranged a Iftar party, but the JD(U) leaders gave it a miss.
