PATNA: Even as most political parties are busy tweaking their campaign plans for this year's assembly polls in Bihar, cracks within the Grand Alliance led by the RashtriyaJanata Dal (RJD) over seat-sharing are coming to the surface.

The RashtriyaLokSamata Party (RLSP), part of the Grand Alliance, is reportedly upset over seat distribution and has called a meeting of its members to discuss the issue on Thursday.

RLSP sources say that the RJD wants to give 10 or less seats to the party, whereas the party leadership is seeking as many as 35 seats.

RLSP chief and former Union minister UpendraKushwaha has already met RJD leader TejashwiYadav in this regard.

Meanwhile, party general secretary AnandMadhav says it is a matter of concern that the biggest members of the alliance - the Congress and the RJD - are yet to arrive at an understanding over seat-sharing. This is sending out the wrong signal to the voters.

"We will discuss all these circumstances at the party's national and state executive on Thursday. Our future course of action will be decided in the meeting." (IANS)
