Political activities have gained momentum in the National Capital, with the leaders of various parties holding consultations on setting up of a new political order.

Top leaders of National Democratic Alliance will meet over dinner tomorrow ahead of declaration of Lok Sabha poll results on Thursday.

The meeting will take place in New Delhi where NDA leaders  including BJP President Amit Shah will chalk out strategy on possible outcome of General elections.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi  is also expected to be present  there besides Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) President Nitish Kumar, Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray and Lok Janshakti Party head Ram Vilas Paswan.

A meeting of senior BJP leaders is also scheduled to be held  at party headquarters before the dinner meeting. The two meetings are  taking place in the backdrop of  exit polls which have predicted a return of BJP led NDA government at the Centre.

Opposition leaders, on the other hand, are preparing for eventuality of a fractured mandate, consolidation of non-NDA parties and other splinter groups for formation of a new government at the Centre.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu has been holding talks with top opposition leaders, including Congress President Rahul Gandhi and NCP Chief Sharad Pawar, in New Delhi.

Mr Naidu has been meeting with leaders of different parties to rally support for a non-BJP government at the Centre.
