PATNA: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has finally sorted out the seat sharing issues with its allies and is likely to release the blueprint for the upcoming Bihar assembly elections, news reports claimed.

Sources suggests that during a meeting on September 11, BJP President Amit Shah has successfully convinced its allies, including Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), for sharing seats based on individual influence. LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan is said to have agreed to the formula, coming down from his earlier demand of 40 seats.

Among other BJP partners, Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustan Awam Morcha and Upendra Kushwaha’s Rashtriya Lok Samta Party have been vocal about whatever the BJP chief will decide,  they will agree upon. According to TV reports, the seat sharing deal with these two parties has already been finalised.

Keeping around 160 seats in its pocket, BJP is planning to share rest of the 243 seats with its allies. Before the official announcement, Amit Shah is likely to hold meetings with all the MPs and top BJP leaders.

Following a simple formula of sharing, BJP wants to keep maximum number of seats so that they can have a chance of gaining comfortable majority of 122 seats on its own. Sources also indicates that BJP is worried about the mega-coalition’s drive which can sweep a large number of seats. In that case, if BJP gains majority, and Nitish-Lalu’s coalition gets second most seats, then it will be tough for BJP to get its allies on board.

In convincing all the allies for Bihar polls, union minister Ananth Kumar has been the chief negotiator where he worked hard on toning their demands and persuaded them to settle for least number of seats.
