NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Saturday ruled out formation of a third front at the national level as an alternative to the ruling UPA and the opposition NDA.

"I don't think so as on today," he said when asked about the possibility of emergence of a third front in the near future.

Addressing a press conference ahead of the third national convention of the party, the Union Agriculture Minister said there were just two coalitions at the national level namely the ruling UPA and the opposition NDA.

Asked about the possibility of formation of a third front for the 2009 general elections, Pawar said, "I cannot say about 2009 or 2014 ... I am not an astrologer."
