Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar meet PM Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah in the national capital on Thursday.
However, the inside details of the meetings between the two senior leaders remains unknown.
Nitish Kumar meet PM Modi first at latter’s New Delhi residence.
Just after his meet with the PM, the Bihar CM asserted that senior JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav, who has expressed himself against the alliance between JD(U) and NDA, is free to choose his path.
“The party has taken a decision with everyone’s consensus. He (Sharad Yadav) is free to make his own decisions,” Nitish Kumar told reporters outside Parliament.
His remarks came a day after former party president Sharad Yadav declared he was still with the Grand Alliance of the RJD and Congress.
“I still stand with Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) that was given a mandate by 11 crore people in Bihar in the 2015 assembly polls to rule for five years,” Yadav had told the media after landing at the Patna airport from Delhi.
Nitish later met Amit Shah at his residence.
BJP National General Secretary Bhupender Yadav shared a picture of Nitish’s meeting with Amit Shah and captioned it, “Hon’ble National President BJP Sh @AmitShah ji met Hon’ble CM of Bihar Sh @NitishKumar ji today in Delhi.”
