Uma trains guns on Left, Congress
Jalandhar, July 31
Training her guns at the Left parties and the Congress and hinting that her party would have an ideological and political confrontation with both, firebrand leader Uma Bharti has equated the BJP with a dead body “devoid of any soul”.
Ms Uma Bharti, chief of the Bhartiya Jana Shakti Party (BJSP), said her party was not likely to have any sort of confrontation with the BJP as the ongoing “degeneration of the party would take it to a point in about one and half years, where, it would be left with just leaders and no workers.”
