President MK Tuesday

said he saw no chances for a non-BJP, non-"third front" post Lok Sabha polls, but a decision could be taken only after May 23, the counting day.

Stalin's remarks come a day after TRS supremo and K Chandrasekara Rao, who has been pushing for a non-Congress, non-BJP federal front of regional parties, called on the chief here.

Stalin, also Leader of Opposition, said Rao had not visited the state for forging alliances.

"He did not come to form alliances. He came to to offer prayers in various temples and on that basis, sought an appointment with me for a courtesy call. That is all," he told reporters here.

Rao had earlier visited the at Srirangam before meeting

Asked about the possibility of a "third front" sans BJP and Congress, the leader said, "It doesn't seem to me that there is a chance for that."

"However, that will be decided only after counting on May 23," he added.
