Under the NDA’s proposed seat-sharing formula, the BJP will keep the lion’s share of 20 seats whereas the remaining 20 seats will be distributed among its allies. The JD-U will be given 12 seats. Bihar has a total of 40 LS seats.

JU spokesman Neeraj Kumar denied cracks in the NDA saying “Those who are daydreaming are making such rumours. There is not a single ounce of truth in this report”.

However, he added, “there are some issues which will be resolved soon”.

“Nitish Kumar should have taken the decision 6 months ago…The JD(U) will be given only 8-7 seats by BJP,” former RJD minister Vijay Prakash told the local media.
