Lucknow: BJP Monday accused Congress leader
Digvijay Singh of hatching a conspiracy to get the nomination
paper of its senior party leader Uma Bharti rejected.
Terming it to be a desperate act, BJP spokesman Rajiv
Pratap Rudy said Congress has conceded defeat and was
therefore adopting indirect methods to dent BJP.
He alleged that an application was moved through an
independent candidate Rampal for cancellation of Bharti`s
nomination from Charkari.
The application was rejected by the returning officer and
her candidature was termed valid, he said.
Rudy alleged that Congress leaders were making desperate
efforts "as they have realised that like Bihar, the party will
be wiped out in UP."
He said Congress leaders had in the past targeted Bharti
by referring to her as an outsider.
