Paswan: LJP will fight all seats if no alliance with UPA
LJP President Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday said that his party will fight all seats in Bihar and Jharkhand, if there is no seat sharing with the UPA.

"We will hold a meeting to decide our further strategy in the first week of March," Paswan told reporters in Panaji.

The LJP leader said that his party has asked for 16 seats in Bihar and four in Jharkhand. "If there is no alliance among the UPA constituents, then we will fight all the seats in these two states," he said.

Paswan said that during the last elections, the RJD benefited from the alliance while the LJP had to suffer.

To a question, he said that he has not spoken to RJD chief Lalu Prasad on seat-sharing issue.

Paswan also ruled out the possibility of going with the NDA. "We will be either with the UPA or go on our own," he added.
