Even as YSR Congress party chief Jaganmohan Reddy Friday met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar here to seek his support against bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh,the JD(U) takes it a way forward in direction of exploring chances of a non-Congress and non-BJP front before 2014 polls.

Jaganmohan,who has already met chiefs of several political parties,called on Kumar with four other leaders of his party and sought the JD(U)’s support against bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. JD(U) sources said the Bihar Chief Minister discussed ways to help form a political front that could counter the BJP and the Congress in the general election.

Jaganmohan was given a warm welcome by Kumar during the former’s over one hour stay at the CM residence. “The Bihar CM and Jagan had one on one closed door talk,” said a source.

The CM later told the media: “We see valid point in Jaganmohan saying that a state cannot be bifurcated bypassing its Assembly. Whether a state should be bifurcated or not is a different matter but the Assembly’s views are important.”
