"As a party the BJP stands for a different ideology. There will be no political pact with the BJP. We will never tie up with the BJP, pre-poll or post-poll. We will never tie up with BJP at any given juncture," said Jagan in a reply on whether he will join NDA after the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 in an exclusive interview on CNN-IBN.
He also expressed his respect for BJP senior leader Sushma Swaraj who backed him after there was CBI raid on his properties.
"I have not yet met Sushma Swaraj but will meet her soon. I hold a lot of respect for Sushma Swaraj," he said adding that his interest only lay in the development of Andhra Pradesh.
