On Saturday, Nitish Kumar had said that an "honourable agreement" was reached between Janata Dal United (JD-U) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) regarding the seat-sharing formula.

"Honourable agreement has been reached with the BJP on seat sharing. A formal announcement will be made later," the Bihar chief minister had said in Patna.

The JD-U had earlier expressed their dissent over the BJP's first draft of seat-sharing formula as the saffron party wanted to contest on 20 of the 40 Bihar seats and Nitish Kumar wanted equal distribution of 17 seats each handing the remaining six to Ram Vilas Paswan.

In 2014, both the BJP and the JD-U had fought the elections separately with the saffron party winning 22 seats and the NDA 31. The JD-U had only managed to win two seats.
