New Delhi: Janata Dal-United president Sharad Yadav said on Thursday that he won't allow the Samajwadi Party to walk out of the Janata Parivar and that everything will be sorted out soon.
"Our alliance is intact and will remain intact. I will soon talk to (Samajwadi Party chief) Mulayam Singh Yadav," Sharad Yadav told reporters here.
"I just got to know through the media that the Samajwadi Party is not happy with the seat sharing. In a grand alliance such things happen. We will not allow him to walk out of the alliance. Their concerns will be addressed soon," he added.
The Samajwadi Party on Thursday walked out of the Janata Parivar and decided to contest the Bihar assembly elections on its own. It pledged to contest on its own "with our full might".
Sharad Yadav refused to comment on accusations by Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav that his party had been insulated in Bihar.
"I am not going to respond to any of the accusations. We know the problem has come to our doorsteps and we know how to solve it. I have a lot of experiences in resolving such problems," he said.
The Janata Dal-United and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) had decided to contest 100 seats each for the 243-member Bihar assembly. The Congress was given 40 seats and the Nationalist Congress Party three.
Later, RJD leader Lalu Prasad gave away five seats out of his quota to the Samajwadi Party.
