Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (Jogi) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will hold a crucial meeting on Monday at Bilaspur to decided on seat sharing.

Both the parties had recently entered into alliance in Chhattisgarh to fight the upcoming Assembly election.

While Ashok Siddharth and Lalji Verma, Chhattisgarh in-charges of BSP, will arrive in the state on Monday, JCC (J) Supremo Ajit Jogi himself will be present for the meeting.

JCC(J) has already declared the candidates in around 41 state Assembly constituencies, keeping in view of the upcoming Assembly polls.

Now, after entering into the alliance with the BSP, it would be a tough task for Jogi to negotiate these seats.

Though, Jogi is claiming that discontentment was only for a couple of seats, it is now to be seen whether there will be another round of revolt within the party mainly from the declared candidates.

How will Jogi overcome such a situation is to be seen after the negotiations reach a final stage.

Leaders of both the parties are likely to hold a joint public meeting, in which both the party chiefs will participate and address. A possible date for the public meeting will also be finalized in Monday's meeting, sources said.
