Rajkot: Senior BJP Leader Uma Bharti on Saturday said that she had decided to stay away from politics till December, and devote her time to `Save Ganga` campaign.

Bharti, a former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, is on two-day Saurashtra visit.
Talking to reporters here before leaving for Somnath, Bharti said, "As auspicious Shravan month is going on, I decided to offer prayers at two `jyotirlings` in Gujarat - Somnath in Junagadh district and Nageshwar near Dwarka."

Bharti evaded questions about politics. "Being an active politician, I could not stay away from the politics forever, but have decided now to stay away from active politics from May to December, in order to give full time to the `Save Ganga` campaign," she said.
Pollution of river Ganga was a matter of grave concern, she said, adding that the campaign, in association with environmentalists, sought to create awareness about the issue.
