BJP President, Amit Shah, has reportedly urged the leaders of his alliance partners in Bihar to refrain from making their differences over the seat-sharing in public.
Shah was meeting the leaders of his NDA allies for the Bihar elections in Delhi on Monday.
He said the sole objective for the NDA partners should be to work towards ensuring a huge ‘victory for the alliance in Bihar polls.’
“Winning is the issue. Whichever party gets the ticket in a particular constituency should be able to convince all others that it can win the seat,” Shah has was quoted by Indian Express.
The meeting, attended by the LJP leader, Ram Vilas Paswan and RLSP’s Upendra Kushwaha, lasted for more than two hours.
After the meeting, Paswan told reporters, “As far as division of seats is concerned, it will be announced in a most amicable manner soon. It was not discussed today. We talked about our campaign.”
Both Paswan and Kushwaha, in the past, had asked BJP to contest on 102 seats while leaving the rest for the alliance partners. Pappu Yadav, who had left the Lalu Yadav’s RJD, too is believed to have asked for at least 40 seats for his party causing a big dilemma for the BJP chief.
However, both Kushwaha and Paswan, refused to be drawn into talking about the seat sharing arrangements after their meeting with Shah adding that only the designated people will comment on this subject henceforth.
