Former BJP leader K N Govindacharya Thursday firmly ruled out his return to the party.
"I have said that I will not join BJP and one cannot be more catagorical than that", the former party idealogue told reporters here.
Though some BJP leaders had asked him to rejoin the party, he had told them he did not find any reason to do so.
There was a need to place politics on the level of values and issues and now sharing the benefits of power has become the lone motive in politics, he said giving reasons for not joining the current power politics.
He said this had resulted in some 'moneybags' becoming beneficiaries, "who have influenced the legislature, the judiciary and to a certain extent the media."
