No rift in NDA in Bihar: Nitish

February 26, 2009 16:44 IST

There is no rift in the National Democratic Alliance over the contentious issue of seat-sharing for the coming Lok Sabha polls in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said today.

"The alliance between JD(U) and BJP stands like a rock. There is no rift over seat adjustments for the coming polls," Kumar told reporters.

"We would tell you the number of seats JD(U) and BJP will contest soon after the election schedule is declared," he said.

According to him, any seat-sharing arrangements among the UPA partners consisting of RJD, Congress and LJP will not affect the poll prospects of NDA in Bihar.

On LJP's parliamentary board chairman Ranjan Yadav's recent letter to Ramvilas Paswan expressing displeasure over LJP's inclination towards aligning with RJD, Kumar extended his full support to Ranjan Yadav for raising his voice at this moment.

"In fact, Ranjanji is dead against any alliance with RJD, the party he quit long ago," he said.
