Expelled BJP leader Uma Bharti on Tuesday dismissed the possibility of her going back to the party.
"There is no question of going back to the BJP," Bharti told reporters in Raipur.
To a question about the statement of some BJP leaders that the doors were still open for her, Bharti, President of Bharatiya Janashakti Party said, "it is a damaging step to say doors in BJP are open for me. By doing that they (BJP leaders) are trying to damage my credibility and also of my party."
Alleging that late Pramod Mahajan and his secretary Vivek Moitra were the main "conspirators" involved in the "Bhopal Operation" to dethrone her from Chief Ministership, she said she was a "reluctant politician."
"I was not interested to join politics but because of request from Rajmata Vijayraje Scindia, I joined politics. And also I have never left BJP, I was expelled from the party," she said.
Bharti said the Ram temple, houses for the poor and employment to all were the main agenda of her newly floated party.
