"They (SP) have taken a right decision," NCP General Secretary Tariq Anwar said here.
    
Anwar, who is Lok Sabha member from Katihar, said that with Mulayam Singh Yadav walking out of the alliance "the efforts to bring back splinter parties into Janata Parivar have virtually come to an end."
    
After NCP walked out of the alliance, their 3 seats were given to SP along with two others from RJD quota totalling five. But, they rejected this.
    
The NCP leader, whose party bid adieu to the alliance over being ignored in seat-sharing, said JD(U), RJD and Congress were virtually monopolising the grand secular alliance by "unilaterly" distributing large number of seats among themselves even without consulting NCP and SP.
    
"Sometimes we are blamed for weakening secular alliance by walking out but its not true. We are forced to do this due to monopolistic approach of JD(U), RJD and Congress," he said.
