Bhopal, Dec 20 (UNI) JD(U) President Sharad Yadav today expressed agreement over the decision of the UPA Government for making a separate provision for minorities in the Eleventh Five Year Plan.

Mr Yadav told reporters here today that minorities especially Muslims belong to weaker sections of society and the party believed that such provisions would help in uplifting then.

Regarding the opposition to this provision by the BJP, he said this thinking was be of the BJP but not of the JD (U).

Describing the stand of the Left and the NDA over the Indo-US nuclear deal as appropriate, he said without making it a prestige issue the Congress should cancel the deal as two-thirds majority of Parliament was against it.

On the creation of the Third Front by some parties, Mr Yadav ruled out the possibility of another political front saying only two coalitions -- the NDA and the UPA -- would continue.

''Even if such front comes into existence, it would not continue for a long time,'' he said.

He did not deny possibility of mid-term Lok Sabha polls saying that a decision could be taken after results of Gujarat assembly polls.
