BJP president Amit Shah and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar announced last month that the BJP and the Janata Dal (United) would contest an equal number of seats in the Lok Sabha election next year in Bihar. This led many to ask the question -- why did the BJP agree to Nitish Kumar's demand for equal seats?
The BJP had won 22 seats in 2014 Lok Sabha election while its alliance partners LJP of Ram Vilas Paswan and RLSP of Upendra Kushwaha won nine other seats. The JD(U) had won only two seats and there was speculation that the BJP might not agree to Nitish Kumar's demand for pre-2013 arrangement when he was part of the NDA.
