The Samajwadi Party's Uttar Pradesh chief, Shivpal Yadav, has invited both Nitish Kumar and RJD leader Lalu Prasad for the 5 November function, a Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader said on Thursday.

But Nitish Kumar was unlikely to attend it as Bihar's most popular festival, Chhath Puja, falls on 6 November, said the JD-U leader. But he said there was a chance the Bihar Chief Minister may still go.

Lalu Prasad is, however, expected to attend the celebrations.

The Samajwadi Party had walked out of the RJD-JD-U alliance in Bihar last year, straining relations between Nitish Kumar and Samajwadi supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.

Nitish Kumar has vowed to contest the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls early next year.
