Patna: Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar is likely to share stage with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at an event on Wednesday.

The event has been organised to honour 11th century theologian of Hinduism, Ramanuja Acharya.

The event has been named "Dharam Sansad" and is taking place to mark the 1,000th birth anniversary of Ramanuja Acharya who was born in AD 1017.

Bhagwat is scheduled to address local Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers in the evening.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has hit out the Bihar CM for sharing stage with the RSS chief.

JD (U) president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on July 26 snapped ties with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress. The three parties had formed the Mahagathbandhan in 2015 and swept to power in the Assembly elections held in October-November that year.

Kumar walked out of the Mahagathbandhan following allegations of corruption against RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, who was then the deputy chief minister of the state. The JD (U) joined hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party to retain power leaving the Congress, which is already a spent force in the state, staring at an uncertain future.
