UP polls: Uma to start party campaign after Jan 15

BJP leader Uma Bharti said she would begin her party`s poll campaign after January 15.

New Delhi: BJP leader and incharge of Uttar Pradesh assembly elections Uma Bharti on Wednesday said she would begin her party`s poll campaign after January 15 when she is scheduled to participate in Makar Sankranti on the banks of the Ganges river.
"I would start the party`s campaign in UP soon after the
Makar Sankranti bath in the Ganges on January 15," she told
reporters here today.

Bharti, however, did not answer questions on Babu Singh
Kushwaha`s induction into the party-fold.

There has been a lot of speculation about Bharti`s
non-participation in BJP`s election campaign in UP so far in
the wake of reports about her being miffed over the party`s
decision to induct Kushwaha after quitting BSP.
She also parried questions on whether she would be
contesting coming Uttar Pradesh assembly polls and on who was
the party`s chief ministerial candidate in the state.

"I have left all such decisions to the party President
Nitin Gadkari. He will decide on this," she said.
