Uma`s re-induction under consideration: BJP

The BJP Sunday said the re-induction of former party leaders Uma Bharti and Govindacharya into its fold was under consideration of the central leadership.



Lucknow: The BJP Sunday said the re-induction
of former party leaders Uma Bharti and Govindacharya into its
fold was under consideration of the central leadership.

"The matter is under consideration. But, a final decision
in this regard will be taken by the BJP Parliamentary Board,"
party spokesman Ramnath Kovind told reporters.

On the re-entry of Kalyan Singh, once an Ayodhya movement
icon into the party, he said the former Uttar Pradesh Chief
Minister had himself ruled out such a possibility.

Firebrand Bharti and former party ideologue Govindacharya
had left the BJP in 2003.

Slamming the Mayawati government for installing statues
across Uttar Pradesh, Kovind said the ruling BSP had nothing
to do with the ideology of dalit icon B R Ambedkar who always
opposed idolisation of a person.

"Dr Ambedkar always opposed the idea of idolising a
person and was not in favour of installing statues.

"However, BSP president Mayawati wants to get herself
immortalised by getting her statues installed," he said.

Alleging the Mayawati government had failed on all
fronts, he said erecting statues was its "sole agenda".
