Rae Bareli: Taking on Sonia Gandhi in her
constituency, BJP leader Uma Bharti on Sunday blamed the Congress
for backwardness and poverty in Rae Bareli.
She also asked the Congress chief to give a clarification
on the Batla House encounter issue following "contradictory
statements" from her party leaders.
Bharti also demanded that Election Commission should take
stern action against Salman Khurshid for his recent statements
on the minorities` sub quota.
"Matter of Salman Khurshid is not that of a person or

that to maintain its credibility, it should take stern action
against the minister," Bharti said while addressing an
