" The Congress was also their ally in the by-polls held Aug 21 in 10 assembly constituencies in Bihar."
Patna, Aug 27 - JD-U leader Nitish Kumar will meet RJD chief Lalu Prasad in Mumbai Wednesday for first time after their alliance won six of the 10 assembly seats that went to by-polls in Bihar.

Lalu Prasad is in a Mumbai hospital where he will undergo two major heart surgeries Wednesday.

Nitish Kumar is likely to visit Mumbai Wednesday to meet Lalu Prasad after he undergoes two major heart surgeries, a Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader close to Nitish Kumar said here.

The leader said Nitish Kumar is currently on a visit to Delhi and will go Mumbai to meet Lalu.

When Lalu is in hospital and recovering after two major heart surgeries, it is best and the right time for chote bhai (younger brother Nitish Kumar) to meet bade bhai (elder brother Lalu), JD-U leader Sanjay Singh said.

Singh said it will be a courtesy call, but the two would meet for first time after their alliance formed after a gap of 20 years won six seats in by-polls in Bihar.

The Congress was also their ally in the by-polls held Aug 21 in 10 assembly constituencies in Bihar.

Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) leader Abdul Bari Siddiqui here said hundreds of party leaders and party workers are praying for Lalu's health and well being.
