Patna/ Bhubaneshwar, Mar 3 (ANI): The Janata Dal (United) and the Biju Janata Dal have said talks were on with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after poll dates were set.

"The issue of seat sharing with the BJP will be solved soon. Talks are going on. Apart from Bihar, we will also share seats in other states like Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh," said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Kumar's Janata Dal (United), a constituent of opposition National Democratic Alliance wrested power from Rahstriya Janata Dal in last legislative elections in state elections in November last year.

In Orissa, state Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said decisions would be taken in a day or two.

"I think these decisions should be taken by a day or two, now that the elections have been announced," said Patnaik.

Analysts and pollsters see no party emerging with a clear majority from the election, possibly leading to weeks or even months of political uncertainty as parties negotiate for power just as the once booming economy has been hit by a downturn. (ANI)
