Both parties on Wednesday held meetings.

The alliance is likely to be formally announced soon with BJD's return to the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

After the tie-up, anti government votes will go to the grand old party with winning of 25 to 30 seats in the state, say political observers.

Besides, Congress leaders, who were planning to leave the party, will no more join in the party jumping game while BJP aspirants denied of tickets are likely to join the Congress.

According to reports, the alliance will formally be announced within three to four days.
