When asked about possible return of Bharti against
the background of former Union Minister Jaswant Singh being
taken back into the party, Madhya Pradesh BJP President,
Prabhat Jha here today said that a decision in this regard
will be taken by the BJP's Parliamentary Board.
"There is not much in our hands as far as return of
Bharti into the BJP is concerned. The Parliamentary Board's
secretary, Anant Kumar has already stated clearly that any
decision on the issue will be taken by the board only," Jha
To a question on Jaswant Singh's return, he said that
since it was not proper for a man of his age to be at any
other place, the party has decided to take him back.
The expulsion of Singh was not associated with
indiscipline, but he was expelled from the party for praising
Pakistan's founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah, he added.
