New Delhi/UNI: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Friday met Congress President Sonia Gandhi and CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury in the national capital.

Tejashwi arrived in Delhi last evening, and met the Congress President here, days after taking oath as the Deputy CM of Bihar. He also met Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Sitaram Yechury.

"A pleasure to meet Tejashwi Yadav and greet him on the formation of a secular Mahagatbandhan government. We are confident that Bihar will finally have a government which will listen to and take care of all the people of Bihar especially the poor, downtrodden and the marginalised," Yechury said in a tweet.

Tejashwi also met his father Lalu Prasad Yadav here.

The JD-U and RJD joined hands in Bihar after Nitish Kumar walked out of the NDA. Kumar continues to be the chief minister, while Tejashwi is his deputy.

The newly sworn-in government will give a floor test in the Bihar assembly on August 24.
