Senior BJP leader Uma Bharti took the party by surprise on Saturday as she declared she was ready to take on Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareli — provided she was allowed to keep her seat in Jhansi too.

Bharti, who had earlier rejected Baba Ramdev’s suggestion that the BJP field her from Rae Bareli, on Saturday said she was ready to fight and was confident of a “win from both seats”. Her proposal was, however, summarily rejected by the BJP, which said she  would not be allowed to contest two seats from the same state (MP).
