He said the CMP, whose broad guidelines had already been thought of, is expected to be finalised within a week.

The CMP will be centred around meeting the basic needs, Bardhan said.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Laloo Prasad Yadav said the coalition partners would furnish common issues of their election manifestos to Manmohan Singh out of which the CMP will be decided.
