Party president Sharad Yadav merely said 'the country is full of internal contradictions' when asked whether it was a major set back to his attempt to bring all non-BJP parties together.

SP today announced its decision to leave the alliance saying it felt 'humiliated' as it was not consulted while deciding seats and would contest the assembly election in the state on its own. NCP had pulled out of the alliance last month even as Left parties have decided to contest Bihar polls separately.

Soon after SP announced in Lucknow that it will contest Bihar election separately, the JD-U chief told a press conference here he will find a 'solution' after talking to 'Bhai (brother) Mulayam'. "I have seen that. But let me tell you our alliance will remain. We will talk. We will find a solution. I will not go into details but let me assure you it will not hurt our alliance,” he added.

"We are old very old colleagues. I have to talk to Bhai (brother) Mulayam. I have talked to him once. I will talk to him again. We will resolve this finally," Yadav said.
