Jitin Prasada has also been allotted the 9 Kalidas Marg bungalow that was earlier occupied by Kamal Rani Varun.

Among junior ministers, Paltu Ram has been given sainik kalyan, home guard, Prantiya Rakshak Dal and civil defence. The chief minister is the cabinet minister of these departments.

Meanwhile, Jitin Prasada has dismissed the narrative that his Brahmin identity gave him an advantage after he joined the BJP switching over to the BJP.

“The party and I believe in ‘Sabka saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ and I will take along people from all sections of the society,” he said.
