Paswan along with his wife and son Chirag met Singh at his residence here.

“Neither I or Chirag has discussed anything about government formation or Cabinet portfolio with either Modiji or Rajnath Singh. I think this is BJP’s prerogative to decide who will get what post in the new government,” Paswan told mediapersons after the meeting.

The LJP returned to NDA in February this year and announced to contest the Lok Sabha elections with the BJP-led alliance.

Meanwhile, Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) leader Vaiko, whose party is a component of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), also met Rajnath today.

The meetings come a day after Modi reached out to stalwarts LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi as top leaders held parleys on the formation of the new government that will be sworn-in this week.

The BJP’s parliamentary board will meet on May 20 to formally elect Prime Minister designate Narendra Modi as its leader. The NDA allies will also be invited for a meeting on the same day.
