New Delhi: JD(U) Chief Nitish Kumar on Wednesday met ally Bharatiya Janta Party Chief Amit Shah in the national capital to discuss the seat division for the forthcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The meeting lasted for 15-20 minutes, but no direct talk on number of seats took place. As per sources, a decision on number of seats can be taken before Dussehra, which falls on October 19.

The sources also reveal that Prashant Kishore, who has recently joined JDU would hold talks with BJP on behalf of Nitish’s party on seat sharing.


As per sources, an assurance was made from BJP’s end that it would keep JD(U) happy over their seat share in the general polls and Paswan would stay with the two.

The decision on number of seats to LJP has however been left on BJP.

After the meeting, Amit Shah didn’t himself come out to see off Nitish Kumar and instead sent Bhupendra Yadav for the same.

The current seat ration between JD(U) and BJP in Lok Sabha is 1:11; which means is BJP has 11 MPs, then JDU has 1 against it.
