The BJP in Madhya Pradesh has chosen to stay shut over the possible return of former state Chief Minister Uma Bharti into the partyfold after the Central leadership asked senior leaders to desist from going public about their views on the issue.

"The decision on re-admitting Bharti into the party will be taken by BJP President Nitin Gadkari and other senior leaders and is not concerned with me," former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kailash Joshi, who is close to Bharti told PTI.

The party leaders are maintaining a stoic silence on the issue after the central party leaders snubbed senior ministers, Babulal Gaur and Kailash Vijaywargiya for speaking in favour of Bharti's return.

When contacted, Bharti, however told PTI that she will speak on anything only after the death anniversary of her close relative which falls next month.
