He was received by senior BJP leaders including Union Ministers from Bihar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and several party workers, who thronged the Patna airport with garlands to welcome him.

Soon after his arrival, Shah, along with senior party leaders, went to the state guest house near Raj Bhawan to have breakfast with Nitish Kumar and other senior Janata Dal-United leaders.
