Patna: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reached Bihar Thursday morning to meet Janata Dal (United) leader and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

While arriving at Patna airport, Kejriwal was shown flags by some people, who called themselves as Anna Hazare's supporters.

Kumar and his Delhi counterpart Kejriwal will share the dias at a function here today, an event considered important to boost JD(U) leader's chances in the coming 2015 Bihar Assembly elections.

Kumar and Kejriwal would be together at a seminar to celebrate completion of four years of Right to Service Act in Bihar, an official statement said.

Kejriwal will be the chief guest at the seminar, it said.
