New Delhi: The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) remains on "ventilator" and needs "oxygen" from BJP leader LK Advani, who has quit all party posts, the Janata Dal-United said on Tuesday.

"NDA is still on ventilator and needs oxygen from Advani. Now that Atalji (Atal Bihari Vajpayee) is sick and Advaniji is gone, we don't know who to look at," said party leader KC Tyagi.

"Advaniji's resignation is a very serious issue. He was a key NDA founder. We will have to think twice about this coalition now," Tyagi added.

"The power has gone from Advani to somewhere else," he said, alluding to Advani's dramatic decision to give up party posts after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was named to head the BJP's next Lok Sabha campaign committee.

The JD-U on Monday said it would be tough for it to remain with the NDA if Advani was no more a key part of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
