NEW DELHI, Jan 21 � AGP president and former Assam Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta was today non-commital over his party�s alliance with the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls, saying the party has not given a �thought� to the issue yet.

�We have not thought over the issue. The party�s top leaders will sit together soon and take a decision on it,� he told PTI here.

Mahanta said the BJP has not yet formally approached the AGP for an electoral alliance in Assam.

�I am neither ruling out nor ruling in. Let us discuss among ourselves first.

Neither BJP approached us nor we have gone to them for any alliance yet,� he said.

There are 14 Lok Sabha seats in Assam.

The AGP and BJP had an electoral alliance for the 2009 Lok Sabha polls in Assam in which BJP got

four seats while the AGP got just one.

However, the alliance did not last long and both the parties split soon with AGP leaving the NDA.
