Mumbai: BJP chief Nitin Gadkari on Thursday alleged that the Karnataka government had been destabilised by JD-S and Congress' "money power".

"This kind of politics is started by Congress party. The government in Karnataka is destabilised by JD-S and Congress' money power," Gadkari said.

"Truth is, every MLA wants to become a minister but not everyone can become one. I can assure you that Karnataka Government is a popular government and we are committed to give a good, corruption-free governance," he said in a web chat at the state BJP office here.

In Maharashtra, Gadkari ruled out any alliance with 'good friend' Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).

Asked if the recent Ayodhya verdict is a moral boost to BJP, Gadkari said, "I don't want to politicise the verdict. Ayodhya is not a political subject. It is a national issue."

On criticism over the choice of words in his speeches, Gadkari said "it is a wrong impression in the minds of the Press. I believe my words were wrongly interpreted."

Asked about the vexed Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute, Gadkari said, "This issue is related with the Central Government. When there is a dispute between states the Centre or Supreme Court should resolve the issue."
