Bangalore: Union Minister for Law and Justice M Veerappa Moily on Saturday said Congress will not be a party to moves to destabilise the BJP government in Karnataka and was keen on returning to power on its own.

"Congress will not indulge in any act to bring down the BJP government whose image has already nosedived in the eyes of public," Moily told reporters here.

Congress has a good reputation at the national level and also in Karnataka and would strive to bring the party back to power on its own in the next elections, he said.

The dissidence that has been batterring the BJP would itself bring the government down government and there is no need for the Congress to intervene, he said.

BJP has become weak at the national level and in the state, he said.

Moily declined to react to impeachment proceedings against Karnataka Chief Justice P D Dinakaran, saying "it is for the Supreme Court to appoint a three-member committee to probe the issue".

In another development, Congress leaders at a meeting convened by Opposition leader in the state assembly Siddaramaiah decided to urge the party high command not to join hands with JDS in "destabilising" BJP government.

Former Chief Minister and JDS leader H D Kumaraswamy, who has been in touch with some Congress leaders, recently predicted the collapse of Yeddyurappa government.
