Soon after it came to light on Monday that Communist Party of India leader Kanhaiya Kumar met senior Janata Dal-United leader and Bihar Minister Ashok Choudhary at his residence in Patna, it surprised many and shocked a few.
“Kanhaiya as part of the CPI delegation led by a party MLA met Nitish Kumar on February 13 for the development of Begusarai district,” said a CPI youth leader who works with Kanhaiya.
“During the meeting,” he added, “Nitish Kumar asked Ashok Choudhary, who was present there, to look into the demands of the delegation. After that Ashok Choudhary telephoned Kanhaiya and invited him to his residence for a meeting to discuss the issue in detail. That was all, nothing more to it.”
