New Delhi, Apr 25 (UNI) Leading telecom mobile operator Bharti Airtel today said ''there is nothing on the table as of now'' regarding the bid for South African telecommunications group MTN.

''There is nothing on the table as of now,'' Bharti Enterprises Group Managing Director Akhil Gupta told reporters here.

The media had quaoted an unidentified person familiar with the deliberations as saying that Bharti's board members were in advanced discussions about its growth strategy, which had largely been organic to date.

''The company board has not discussed any such matter in its recent meeting,'' Mr Gupta said.
