Expressing disappointment over lack of coordination between the allies of NDA, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief on Thursday reiterated that the Democratic Alliance needs to have a coordination committee or a convener so that allies may get aware of government's stance over any policy issue or other matters in advance.

Speaking to ANI, Paswan said, "needs a coordination committee or an convener should be appointed as soon as possible. It is necessary for the allies to exchange information with each other so that may come out with its plan and policies in a strong way."

In the meeting of the standing committee on information and technology on Wednesday, the MP Mehboob Ali Kaiser voted with the Opposition as the BJP members were keen to stall the discussion on data security and privacy.

"The NDA should speak in one voice. The allies should also have the information beforehand about what the BJP is up to and what are the policies and how to move on issues," he said.

Earlier also, in an all-party meeting held ahead of the Winter Session of Parliament, Paswan urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to form a coordination committee in the Democratic Alliance (NDA) or appoint an NDA convener.
