The joint press conference planned to be addressed by BJP chief Rajnath Singh, senior leader L K Advani [ Images ] and the AGP leadership at BJP headquarters in New Delhi [ Images ] was cancelled citing the demise of a relative of a state BJP leader.
Meanwhile, the AGP leadership was "taken" to the residence of party chief Rajnath Singh on Wednesday where they held a meeting for almost an hour, sources said.
Commenting on the development, party leader Arun Jaitely [ Images ] said, "I am not sure about the reason of the cancellation."
"One or two minor issues "still needs to sorted out for the alliance. A announcement is not likely to take place before the tenth of this month. The state leadership have been asked to co-ordinate in the matter," BJP sources said.
Earlier, the AGP and the BJP had held a joint press conference to announce a seat-sharing formula between the two parties, but failed to declare an alliance.
