New Delhi, Oct 3: Even as the political impasse over transfer of power in Karnataka continues, the Congress Party today said it had no role to play ''at the moment.''

''We do not have any role to play now,'' AICC Spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan told mediapersons, adding, ''It is a changing dynamics...we will have to wait and see.'' Asked about reports that the Congress had already assured outside help to Janata Dal(S) Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy in the event of the BJP withdrawing support, she said, ''frankly speaking, I am not aware.''

In this context she asserted that ''the matter is now between the JD(S) and the BJP. As and when situation changes, we may have more role. However, it is for Congress President Sonia Gandhi and senior party leaders to decide.'' ''Politics is constantly changing dynamics,'' she said when a reporter drew her attention to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's reported statement in Karnataka three months ago that the Congress Party would not have any truck with the JD(S).

Asked what was in the mind of the Congress in the event of a crisis in Karnataka, Ms Natarajan said, ''Our action plan is not dependent on the activities of the Opposition.'' In this context, she said she had no idea of how the BJP mind was working. ''They cannot see reality and work for the welfare of the people.''
