Bihar: Tejashwi, Tej Pratap Yadav seen together after long gap
The RJD leader further said that Nitish Kumar is in favour of the caste-based census.

A day after giving the government a 72 hours ultimatum to spell its stand on the caste census, Leader of Opposition in Assembly on Wednesday met Chief Minister at his official residence to discuss the issue.

Sources have said that the invitation for the meeting with the Chief Minister was made to on Tuesday evening itself.

After the hour-long, closed-door meeting with Nitish Kumar, looked less aggressive.

"I met Nitish Ji and he assured me to conduct a caste-based census very soon. He also said that the all-party meeting will be soon organised in Patna followed by announcement of caste based census," he said.

The RJD leader further said that is in favour of the caste-based census.

Tejashwi Yadav came alone for the meeting, though, generally, he is accompanied by senior party leaders like Jagadanand Singh, Abdul Bari Siddiqi or Shyam Rajak.

Similarly, when CM meets BJP leaders, his own JD-U leaders like Vijay Chaudhary, Lalan Singh or any other senior leaders accompany him. On this occasion, no one knows what political settings happened between these two leaders.

Following the assurance, Tejashwi Yadav dropped his Padyatra programme for now.
