No outside support from BJP: Paswan

March 01, 2005 13:45 IST

Amidst reports that his newly elected party legislators favoured seeking outside support of the Bharatiya Janata Party in government formation in Bihar, Lok Janshakti Party chief Ramvilas Paswan on Tuesday ruled out any such possibility.

"Neither will I support RJD or BJP nor will I take their support," he said.

There could be no compromise formula, he said when asked about reports that he would not mind if a Muslim leader from the RJD replaced Rabri Devi as chief minister.

He also said that no one from the Janata Dal-United had spoken to him.

"Our national executive is going to meet but from our side there will be no initiative because the JD-U till now is part of the BJP-led NDA and JD-U will have to decide..." he said.
