Bangalore, Mar 24 (UNI) The Karnataka BJP today ruled out the possibility of having any alliance with All India Anna DMK (AIADMK) in the coming Legislative Assembly elections in the state.

''There is no question of having alliance with AIADMK or any other party for the mid-term polls to the Karnataka Assembly,'' party president D V Sadananda Gowda said.

Talking to newspersons here, he said the party would contest all the 224 seats on its own and there is no dearth of candidates or leaders in the party as alleged by some political party leaders.

BJP spokesman Suresh Kumar, taking strong exception to senior Congress leader M Veerappa Moily's statement that BJP was projecting Mr B Yeddyurappa as Chief Ministerial candidate due to lack of leaders, said ''let Mr Moily cleanse his party first and then question other party.'' ''Why Mr S M Krishna has returned to state politics? It is due to the dearth of leaders in Congress and rampant infighting among the seniors,'' he alleged.

''Including Mr Moily, KPCC President Mallikarjun Kharge are against Mr Krishna's return. When this is the situation of Congress, what right Mr Moily has to question the decision of other party,'' he added.
