Up to BJP leadership to decide Uma's return: MP CM



Indore: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan sidestepped questions about the possible return of former BJP leader Uma Bharti into party fold, saying his priority was the state's development.

"It was up to the party leadership to decide (on Uma's return to BJP). As chief minister, my duty is to work for the state's development and welfare of the people..," Chouhan said when asked about possibility of Uma returning to the party.

The BJP leader was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function at Machal, about 20km from here.

Asked about "tainted" ministers in his Cabinet, Chouhan asserted that if charges against anyone were found to be true, action will be taken.
