Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has invited Jharkhand Minister and BJP leader Saryu Roy for his swearing-in on November 20 in Patna.
“Nitish Kumar called Saryu Roy, who is the Parliamentary Affairs Minister in the Jharkhand government led by Raghubar Das, over phone and invited him to attend his swearing-in,” a close aide of Roy has said.
