Sonia should clarify Congress' stand on Ramdev: Uma

bhopal Updated: Feb 26, 2011 16:13 IST

Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti on Saturday demanded that Sonia Gandhi clarify whether the statements made by Congress leaders against yoga guru Baba Ramdev were endorsed by her party.

If the statements asking Ramdev to declare his assets and source of funding were a part of the "Congress policy" then Sonia must make public the details of properties owned by her and her family too, the Hindutva leader told reporters at her residence here.

Bharti did not name any Congress leader. But recently, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh had demanded that the yoga guru reveal his own sources of income before targeting Congress on the issue of blackmoney.

Asked whether she would join the political party that Ramdev was planning to float, Bharti said it was too early to say anything.

She asserted that she was not quitting politics. "I will remain in politics till the end of my life," the former BJP leader said.

Amid reports of her possible return to the BJP, Bharti had said that she would work along apolitical lines on various issues of public interest.
