RSS must rethink ties with BJP, says Uma

BHARATIYA JANSHAKTI president Uma Bharti Thursday advised the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to reconsider its decision to cooperate with the Bharatiya Janata Party that had “renounced” nationalism, Hindu ideology and morality. “I am saddened about the RSS cooperating with the BJP that encourages feudal terror and monarchy,” the firebrand sadhvi told journalists here.

Responding to a question on an RSS endeavour to re-induct her in the BJP, she admitted that such attempts were made but after the BJ was formed, she herself rejected the moves.

Executing a political somersault, she described former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and ex-deputy premier L K Advani as “worthy of respect” and added that the BJP’s second line of leadership was playing the politics of hatred.

“Due to the second-line leadership, the two are unable to provide proper guidelines. Remaining mute spectators to the erosion of ideology is lethal not only for the party organisation but also for the country,” she added.

The sanyasin alleged that the State government, which is “intoxicated by power,” stooped to employ every devious means for ensuring victory at the October 30 bypolls to Vidisha parliamentary constituency and Malehra assembly constituency.
