Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar met Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge and former party chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday, the second such meeting in the last one and a half months.
Kumar met Kharge and Gandhi at the Congress chief's 10, Rajaji Marg residence.
Congress general secretary (organisation) KC Venugopal and Janata Dal (United) chief Lalan Singh were also present during the meeting, which came a day after Kumar and Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal called for Opposition unity to take on the BJP.
The JD(U) leader met the Aam Aadmi Party convenor at his residence in Delhi and extended "complete support" to him in the ongoing face-off with the Centre over the control of administrative services.
Significantly, Bihar chief minister Kumar, Tejashwi Yadav, Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren, Nationalist Congress Party president Sharad Pawar, Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah attended the swearing-in ceremony of Siddaramaiah as the Karnataka chief minister on Saturday.
Kumar has been seen to meet several Opposition leaders and regional satraps over the last few months.
Late last month, Kumar had hinted that a meeting of Opposition leaders may take place in Patna after the Karnataka assembly polls were over.
