With exit polls predicting a fractured verdict, Fourth Front leaders Mulayam Singh Yadav and Ram Vilas Paswan today discussed the future course of action for govPOLL-PASWANernment formation at the Centre.

Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav and his party general secretary drove to the residence of Lok Janshakti Party leader Ram Vilas Paswan, where they met for nearly 30 minutes.

RJD leader Lalu Prasad, who is also part of the new alliance was, however, not present as he was in Patna. After the meeting, Singh told reporters that the Fourth Front will decide on the future course of action after the results are out on May 16.

"We will decide and come up with a strategy...The alliance is not restricted to the elections. It will continue post-poll," Singh, flanked by both Yadav and Paswan, said.

When asked about the the absence of the RJD chief, he said "Prasad is in Patna. We spoke to him over telephone." Singh, however, evaded questions on the Fourth Front's Prime Ministerial candidate. "No comments," he said to queries on the alliance's stand on PM candidate.

Exit polls have projected that UPA will get 190 to 205 seats and NDA 185 to 196 in the 543-member House and Third Front at a little over 100 seats.
