Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National President Amit Shah on Thursday had a brief meeting with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over breakfast, during which the two leaders are understood to have discussed the prevailing political situation in view of Lok Sabha polls due next year.

Shah arrived here from Ranchi on Thursday morning and was given a warm welcome at airport by BJP workers and senior leaders, including party State President Nityanand Rai.
This is BJP Chief’s first visit to State since the dramatic political realignment of last year when Kumar, the Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) National President, walked out of Grand Alliance which included the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress, and returned to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Shah drove straight to State guest house where he met Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, BJP’s National General Secretary in-charge for Bihar Bhupendra Yadav and Rai, over a simple breakfast of “poha”, Bihari dishes made of “sattu”, fruits, lassi and buttermilk.
