I am using the alpha style with natbib (author-year). My problem is that I am getting the labels aligned right in the Bibliography list items, but I want them left !! It may be useful to mention that I am using bibtopic!

I don't think it's a good idea. But the document is yours. :)

Write the following magic code after you've loaded natbib:

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\patchcmd{\@lbibitem}
  {\item[\hfil\NAT@anchor{#2}{\NAT@num}]}
  {\item[\NAT@anchor{#2}{\NAT@num}\hfill]}
  {}{}
\makeatother

This redefines the \@lbibitem command that's responsible for many things, among which the placement of the label.
