Ahead of national election in couple of months, the stakeholders in Bihar may have finally arrived at some sort of consensus on seat sharing.
It is said that the BJP, Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United and Ram Vilas Paswan’s party have sealed a seat-sharing agreement.
In his last meeting of the JDU’s state executive, Nitish Kumar had announced that the talks with BJP chief Amit Shah on seat sharing have concluded.
He said that the party has managed to secure a respectable number of seats.
This was the same meeting where political strategist Prashant Kishore officially became a member of the Janata Dal United and Nitish Kumar made him sit next to him on the right.
Many leaders in the state suspect that a fourth stakeholder Kushwaha seems to be holding out on a call on whether to stay with the NDA or join the opposition ranks only in January after the elections in three states.>
