Hundreds of youths, mostly student's wing members of left parties, welcomed Kanhaiya when he arrived at Patna airport.

Kanhaiya, who was arrested on the charge of sedition in February in connection with an event on campus against hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised, was released on bail in March.

Kanhaiya is scheduled to meet Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and other leaders who had supported his campaign against fascist forces.

He is also likely to meet BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha.

Kanhaiya will address a meeting at the SK memorial hall in Patna on 1 May with 'Azadi' being the dominant theme of his discourses.

Kanhaiya is also likely to visit his village Bihat in Begusarai to meet his parents.
