BJ, BJP out to woo voters

THE BIGGIES from the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Bharatiya Janshakti are desperately trying to woo the voters in Vidisha Lok Sabha constituency and Bada Malehra assembly constituency much before the by-polls dates are announced.

If the Bharatiya Janshakti president Uma Bharati visited Vidisha constituency today the chief minister Shivarj Singh Chouhan would follow the suit tomorrow. The Congress is not seen in the picture at the moment. 

The Bharatiya Janshakti president today addressed a women’s convention besides attending certain other programmes at Vidisha city.

Much aware of the Vidisha constituency’s past records Uma Bharati tried her level best to project Bhartiya Janshakti as the true inheritor of Hindutva temple and ideology. The Bharatiya Janata Party was the old temple of Hindutva, she said in a bid to bring home to the electorate how the BJP had deviated from the path of Hindutva.

Bharti said she was pained to see corruption in the state government as it was formed with her ‘tapasya’. She said that during the recent floods people had starved for many days and their houses were damaged, but there was no one to listen to their woes, she said.

She said BJP is now an unprincipled party and has forsaken Hindu ideology. Bhartiya Janshakti believes in these principles, she added. She said Vidisha had been voting for the Hindutva ideology and its flag, hence people must not forget that Bharatiya Janshakti was now the flagship of Hindutva ideology and its flag was saffron, the colour of Hindutva.

The sadhvi’s desperate attempts to make inroads in the BJP fortress in the constituency are certainly a cause of worry in the BJP camp.  In the chain of the BJP leaders’ visits to the constituency the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will reach Kulhar village in Vidisha district by helicopter at 11 am on August 24. He will visit Pathari at 12  noon and Vidisha city at 3 PM before returning to Bhopal in the evening.

His cabinet colleague Rampal Singh has already left for Vidisha and he would be accompanying the CM during his programme, said the party sources.

In the September first week, the State BJP president Satyanarayan Jatia and the organising general secretary Kaptan Singh Solanki will be visiting Vidisha. The leaders will also be visiting Bada Malehra around the same time.
