Patna:  Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi will attend Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi`s swearing-in ceremony in Delhi Monday, officials said.

"Manjhi will attend Modi`s swearing-in ceremony as he has to raise the demand of special category status to Bihar," said an official of the chief minister`s office here.
Janata Dal-United president Sharad Yadav and former Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar Sunday decided not to attend the oath-taking ceremony.

Modi had earlier called Manjhi over phone and assured him of all support for the state`s development.

Meanwhile, JD-U general secretary and spokesperson K.C. Tyagi said he will attend the swearing-in ceremony as the "representative of JD-U".
