New Delhi: LK Advani's era is over and the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) would soon take a decision on its alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party, JD-U leader Shivanand Tiwari said on Wednesday.

"LK Advani is a very senior leader, but his stature has been reduced. His phase is over and he is at an age where he should retire," Tiwari said.

Tiwari said the BJP naming Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the chief of the party's election campaign for 2014 elections was an indirect elevation as its prime ministerial candidate.

"This signifies lot of things and we are taking it seriously," he said. On the alliance between the BJP and the JD-U, Tiwari said, "Now things are clear, and we will take a final call in a day or two."
