BJP fielded LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan to brief media after their over 90-minute long meeting in which the Union Minister said announcement on seat-sharing is likely to be made in a week and ruled out any conflict among the allies over it.

"As far as division of seats is concerned, it will be announce in a most amicable manner soon. It was not discussed today. We talked about our campaign and NDA will win with two-thirds majority in Bihar," he said. Dubbing the RJD-JD(U) rally in Patna yesterday a 'flop show', Paswan said it was an 'insult' for Congress chief Sonia Gandhi who was made to speak before Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad.

Asked about his party's and RLSP demand that BJP should contest only 102 seats and leave 142 for its allies, Paswan played it down and said it was decided that no statement on the issue will be made by various leaders and only authorised party people will speak. RLSP leader Upendra Kushwaha, whose party has been most vocal and had even demanded that he should be declared the NDA's chief ministerial candidate, said the alliance would speak in one voice and their foremost priority was a big victory.

The meeting also decided to give a fillip to joint campaigning by NDA parties and that the campaign material of different constituents should give space to leaders of the allies.
