"Nitish Kumar called up the President of National Conference personally in the morning and requested his participation in the oath-taking ceremony," a NC spokesperson said here. The spokesman said that the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister has accepted the invitation.

Nitish Kumar earlier today also invited his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee for the swearing-in ceremony on November 20 and she has agreed to attend it.
"Nitish Kumar called up our Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and invited her for the swearing in ceremony and she has agreed to attend the ceremony," Trinamool Congress national spokesperson Derek O' Brien said.
Last week, the two leaders had spoken over phone after the Bihar results were announced and Kumar had thanked Banerjee for supporting the Grand Alliance in Bihar in their fight against BJP. Mamta Banerjee had congratulated Nitish Kumar over twitter and termed the victory of Grand Alliance in Bihar as a defeat of "Intolerance".
