Patna: With rumblings in NDA over Narendra Modi's appointment as BJP's election campaign committee chief, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday said his party is concerned over the recent developments in the coalition but will take a call on the alliance after discussions in JD-U.

He said senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, as well as party president Rajnath Singh, had called him and discussed the issues related to their alliance.

"Advani discussed some issues and said some things. We will discuss them in our meeting. We will take cognizance of these things... We will discuss all issues. Before that it is not proper for me to say anything. "But we are concerned about the developments which have taken place in the last few days," Kumar said.

Kumar said he is in touch with Chief Ministers of West Bengal and Orissa but it is too early to say whether a Federal Front is being formed by the regional parties.

"Mamata Banerjee had talked to me on the phone and her view is that Bihar, Orissa, West Bengal and Jharkhand have some common problems and we should think about them together," Kumar said.

"If all of us together understand these problems and form a common front it would be good.... This is at an initial stage and one should not speculate that a political front has been formed," he said.
