The meeting of JD(U) MPs and MLAs took place at the chief minister's official residence, party sources said.

The meeting of the RJD legislators was convened by party leader Tejashwi Yadav at his mother Rabri Devi's Circular Road bungalow, a stone's throw from the CM's Anney Marg residence.

On the other hand, the BJP also held a meeting at Deputy Chief Minister Tarkishor Prasad's residence and among those present were party's state unit president Sanjay Jaiswal.

More than one of the prospective attendees of the JD(U) meeting denied that the party's ties with the BJP have worsened to an extent to call for a realignment.
