Clarifying that his alliance with the BJP during the assembly elections would be "intact", Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said the delimitation of constituencies would not impact the "seat-sharing or seat-adjustment" between the ruling parties in the state.

"For the first time the assembly elections in Bihar will be held after delimitation of constituencies. But I don't think it would impact the seat adjustment or seat sharing accord with the BJP," Kumar told reporters.

"Leaders of the two parties (JD-U and BJP)will sit together and take an amicable decision to this effect," he said.

Referring to 'Bihar Divas' celebrations across the state on March 22, Kumar said the event was a "grand success."

"We will think of holding a week-long celebration from next year after the encouraging response from the people of the state," the chief minister added.
