Rahul Gandhi holds talks with Bihar Congress leaders

With JD(U) and BJP at loggerheads over the issue of NDA’s prime ministerial candidate, Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday held consultations with Congress leaders from the state to decide its way ahead.

PCC chief Ashok Choudhary and CLP leader Sadanand Singh were present at the deliberations chaired by the Congress vice-president.

AICC Bihar in-charge G S Charak, AICC secretary Sanjay Nirupam and Vijay Laxmi Sadho also participated in the talks.

There was, however, no word from any of the leaders about what transpired in the meeting held against the backdrop of strains in BJP-JD(U) ties over Nitish Kumar’s ‘secular’ pitch for the NDA’s prime ministerial candidate.

The meeting also comes at a time when there is a debate in Congress on whether it should join hands with Nitish Kumar’s party, realign with old ally RJD or stick to its stand of going alone in Bihar which accounts for 40 seats in Lok Sabha.
