He was asked about differences in seat-sharing between the two parties won the sidelines of Mukhyamantri Corona Pratirodh Abhiyan" programme.
"We met the IPFT leadership, where we discussed and suggested to them that we all have to work together. As far as the issues of the Autonomous District Council (ADC) are concerned, when it comes close to the election, the state Chief Minister and the BJP team will make the final decision on what kind of arrangement will be made with the partner," Madhav said.
