Lucknow: JD(U) national president and NDA convenor Sharad Yadav on Saturday said he was of the opinion that there were no possibilities of mid-term Lok Sabha polls in the immediate future.

in detail...but from my view mid-term elections are nowhere
visible as of now," Yadav told reporters here when asked to
comment on Mulayam expressing the possibility of mid-term
polls in the country.

mid-term polls were possible.

make an impact on the Centre...but in what shape and at what
time I cannot say, but there will definitely be an impact," he
On the Lokpal Bill, the JD(U) president said that the
fight against corruption continues and as far as law is
concerned, it would be framed only when there is a consensus
on the issue.
