Sources said that the PM also discussed the probable alliance partners of the BJP, including Chirag Paswan, Mukesh Sahani, Pasupati Kumar Paras and Upendra Kushwaha.
With Chaudhary's appointment as BJP state president, the party's top leadership has given clear indication that it will not ally with Nitish Kumar in Bihar.
