 Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will rub shoulders after nine years in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan on Sunday. The NDA is holding a rally on March 3 and there will be many firsts in regard to this rally.

This will be Modi’s first public rally in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan after becoming Prime Minister. The last meeting he addressed here was in October 2013 when he was NDA’s PM face and Nitish was not a part of NDA. That meeting is remembered for being marred by series of bomb blasts in presence of Modi and in which six people were killed and over 80 injured.

This will be the first time that Modi and Nitish will be at one dais in any political rally in Bihar. In 2000 the two shared dais at Jalandhar where Nitish was reluctant to shake hands with his Gujarat counterpart but Modi not only rushed towards him but held his hand and raised it muchvtobthe chagrin of Nitish. A few years later Modi got this photo published as advertisement in Patna newspapers when he came here to attend BJP meeting. A furious Nitish had famously cancelled the dinner he was going to host for BJP leaders. 

Nitish contested 2014 general election alone after severing ties with BJP in 2013 primarily because of the elevation of Modi in the party but he suffered defeat and in 2015 assembly elections he had aligned with RJD of Lalu Prasad and the Congress which caused. Crushing defeat to the BJP. 

So in both elections Modi and Nitish were sworn enemies and mounted blistering attack on each other. After becoming PM this is first chance that Modi is sharing dais with Nitish. The two though shared dais on certain occasions but they were strictly official functions.

Nitish Kumar not to contest election any more
