Lok Janshakti Party chief, Ramvilas Paswan on Monday hinted that he might extend support to the JD-U and other small parties to form the government in Bihar if the JD-U parted ways with "communal" BJP.

"There is no possibility of the JD-U leaving the NDA," said parliamentary board chairman of the party Sharad Yadav.
