New Delhi: Hours after SP announced quitting the anti-BJP alliance in Bihar, JD-U, the ruling party in the state got into damage control with party chief Sharad Yadav rushing to the residence of Mulayam Singh Yadav to resolve the differences.

The Yadav leaders huddled together at the SP chief's residence in New Delhi for an hour, after which the JD(U) chief told PTI, "there was alliance, there is alliance and the alliance will remain. Everything will be sorted out and amicable solution would be found."

He, however, refused to give the details of any compromise formula being worked out saying these things are not to be shared with media.

Earlier in the day, addressing a press conference in Lucknow, the SP national general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav had announced the party's decision to leave the alliance saying it felt "humiliated" as it was not consulted while deciding seats and would contest the Assembly election in the state on its own.

Soon after, the JD-U President held a press conference in which he said that he would find a "solution" after talking to "Bhai (brother) Mulayam".

The SP Chief is also the leader of the proposed umbrella party of six erstwhile constituents of Janata Parivar.

The JD-U chief also dismissed suggestions of SP "playing into the hands of BJP", a speculation which gained grounds after Mulayam had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi some time back while party General Secretary Ram Gopal Yadav reportedly met BJP Chief Amit Shah on Monday.

Announcing SP's walk out from the grand alliance in Bihar, the SP general secretary had said the party was not happy with the paltry two or five seats offered out of the 243 in the state Assembly.

On the future of 'Janata Pariwar', he said, at that time itself he had stated that he would not sign the "death warrant" of the party.
