Chandigarh, Nov 7: The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) is in the process of forging an alliance with the Congress to contest the assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh together, LJP chief and Union Steel, Chemicals and Fertilisers Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said today.

''I have urged Congress president Sonia Gandhi that secular forces should fight the elections together and the deliberations with the Congress are on to forge an alliance to contest the assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh together,'' Mr Paswan said while talking to reporters here.

He said the two parties might also go in for a joint campaign in the polls and would have talks over seat sharing after the alliance was clinched.

Mr Paswan said the LJP would organise a national level rally at Patna on November 28 to mark its foundation day.
