The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) Wednesday said it is looking for options for an alliance and the "option of BJP is open".

"We are looking for alternate alliance partners as there is a deadlock with existing allies," LJP leader Chirag Paswan said after a meeting of the party's parliamentary board.

LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan, Chirag's father, added: "We have kept the option of BJP open."

Ramvilas Paswan said his party has had grievances with the Lalu-Prasad led Rashtriya Janata Dal since long, and the talks for an alliance with the Congress did not show much progress.

"Elections are at the door, and they (Congress and RJD) have not taken any decision, what can we do," he said.

BJP sources, however, indicated an alliance with the LJP is almost final and an announcement will be made soon.
