The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) have sealed a seat-sharing deal in Bihar for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The agreement will be formally announced soon, said JDU spokesperson Sanjay Singh on Tuesday in Patna.
Earlier, there were disagreements over the seat-sharing between both parties, however, a respectable number of seats have been given to JDU, added Singh.
When asked about numbers of seats in the agreement, Sanjay Singh denied answering.
During 2014 Loksabha elections, JDU fought against BJP. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in Bihar comprised of BJP, JDU, Ram Vilas Paswan-led Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) and Upendra Kushwaha’s Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP).
