New Delhi, Mar 4 (UNI) The BJP today said the party's Parliamentary Board and Central Election Committee meeting, on March 10, will decide the nature of alliance in the coming Assembly elections in five states.

Declining to comment on news reports that the BJP's options in Asom, where the party had bright chances of coming to power riding on the alliance wave were foreclosed because a faction of Asom Gana Parishad had moved to the Left camp, BJP Spokesman Prakash Javadekar said we are going with full confidence and the party's parliamentary board will decide upon the alliances to be reached.

He said the party had announced its intentions to play a junior role in West Bengal, with the Trinamool Congress of Mamata Banerjee playing a dominant role in the state. In Tamil Nadu, the party will fight a lone battle and would not align with either the DMK and AIADMK camps.

''Whatever votes we get in this election will be our own and it is better to make a begining and emerge as a force,'' he said.

He said the Central Election Committee will also finalise the names of 18 Rajya Sabha nominees from the party. The BJP can elect four MPs from Madhya Pradesh, three each from Gujarat and Rajasthan and two each from Karnataka and Bihar, one each from Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh.
