Bihar CM Nitish Kumar holds meeting with Rahul Gandhi


Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today visited Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi at his residence in New Delhi.

The meeting between the two is likely to focus on a possible alliance between the two parties.

With no headway in the dramatic Janata Parivar merger episode, RJD president Lalu Yadav had earlier said that Nitish will decide on the alliance.

Earlier, Janata Dal (United) national president, Sharad Yadav had also met the Bihar CM at his residence to talk about issues related to the merger.

Congress is currently supporting JD(U) government in Bihar and several of its state leaders, including Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee president Ashok Chaudhary.

Janata Parivar, a merger of six political parties as a single party, will include Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United), Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal, Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party, Om Prakash Chautala’s Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), Chandra Shekhar’s Samajwadi Janata Party (Rashtriya) and HD Deve Gowda’s Janata Dal (Secular) will come under the umbrella of the Samajwadi Janata Party.
