New Delhi:

The battle line has drawn and the two factions of JD(U) led by Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and Sharad Yadav respectively are set to clash as they meet on Thursday in Patna.

The national executive meet of Janata Dal (United), Bihar’s ruling party is likely to back Nitish Kumar’s decision to ditch "Mahagathbandhan" and join hands with BJP to form the government. On the other hand, Sharad Yadav has also called a parallel meet and is likely to claim the arrow symbol of Janata Dal (United).
