THIS ABOVE ALL

QUOTE

Both Mr Vajpayee and Mr Advani are helpless and non-performers in decision making. The real BJP belongs to lakhs of workers. But there is a gang of some 40-50 people, including some chief ministers and general secretaries, who have no contribution except conspiracy. I refuse to call this gang a party.
— Uma Bharati
