Amid speculations about chance of Congress going with JD(U) instead of RJD, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today categorically ruled out this possibility and said even a last minute decision on special category status to the state could not pave way for such tie up.

"Its baseless speculation...there is no truth in this," Kumar told reporters ruling out any chance of alliance with Congress if it agrees to provide special category status to Bihar to pave way for the tie-up.

"Sawal paida nahin hota hain (the question does not arise)," he said on chance of JD(U) and Congress forging alliance for the coming elections.

"There has been no such proposal from the beginning...its unnecessary speculation," he said.

Congress and RJD of Lalu Prasad are natural allies, he said.

"Whether talks on alliance between them is progressing or not is their concern...we have nothing to do with it," he said emerging from from a programme to lay foundation of road projects here.

Kumar, who is driving force of JD(U) said, his party would have electoral tie up with CPI and CPM in Bihar for the coming general elections.

"While understanding on seats have been reached with CPI the same is in process with CPM," he said.

He, however, did not disclose the seats and said it would be made public soon.
