Meanwhile, JD(U) Principal General Secretary KC Tyagi said that all the parties are now busy finalizing the seat sharing for the elections. In such a situation, the situation in NDA should also be clear. He said that the party has made preparations for the Uttar Pradesh elections. The party has a desire to fight the elections together with the BJP inside UP, but nothing satisfactory has been done so far.
‘Ready to contest alone’
He also told that there have been talks between many senior leaders including JDU leader RCP Singh and BJP leader Amit Shah regarding this election. Tyagi said that now the time has come to take a decision regarding seat-sharing at the earliest. He also said that if it is not decided soon, then JDU will fight alone in selected seats. He clarified that if there is no talk on this, then JDU will take its own decision.
The ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in Bihar comprises two smaller parties, including the BJP and the JDU. JDU leader RCP Singh is also included in the Union Cabinet.
