Modi govt 3.0: Karpoori Thakur’s son Ramnath gets a berth from JD(U) quota

Two-time JD(U) Rajya Sabha MP Ramnath Kumar of the Janata Dal (United) is all set to become Union Minister in the third Narendra Modi government. Ramnath is the son of socialist stalwart and former Bihar CM Karpoori Thakur who was awarded the Bharat Ranta by the Modi government earlier this year.
