Jaipur, Aug 9 (UNI) Janta Dal (United) president Sharad Yadav today expressed doubt over possibility of an alliance with the ruling BJP for next Assembly election in Rajasthan.

Talking to reporters here Mr Yadav said his party had alliance with the BJP on tribal dominated seats in Assembly election in this state in 2003, however, it was a bad experience and the party had suffered a loss politically.

Mr Yadav said this time, if the situation of an alliance arrives than his party would not keep the same confined to the tribal dominated pockets, but would like to expand it to other areas of the state as well.

''So far we just had a casual dialogue with the BJP Central leadership over the issue of alliance but no talks has so far been held at local level in this regard,'' he said.

Over the Indo-US Nuclear deal, he maintained that UPA government's expectations of energy needs were unlikely to be realised as Nuke deal could help in catering only 3 per cent of the total energy requirements during next 25 years.
