Patna, July 9: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said the JD-U will discuss seat sharing for the next Lok Sabha polls with the BJP when the time comes. The Janata Dal-United leader also denied any differences with the Bharatiya Janata Party and said there were no troubles within the National Democratic Alliance. “We will discuss seat sharing for 2019 polls when the time comes,” Nitish Kumar told the media here. He said this a day after the JD-U National Executive meeting in Delhi decided that it would like to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections with its coalition partner BJP. “We will sit together at the right time to discuss seat sharing.” Nitish Kumar, however, criticized senior BJP leader and Union Minister Griraj Singh for meeting some persons accused of taking part in riots. “We will not allow communal troubles in the state.” (IANS)
