Bharatiya Janshakti chief Uma Bharti on Saturday denied to reply on her possible return to the parent party BJP, by saying she would not like to comment on the issue.
"No comment", she replied when she was asked about her return to the BJP fold in the wake of party chief Rajnath Singh sending positive signals in this regard.
Bharti, had earlier said that she would make her stand known on the issue by November 25. Replying to a query, Bharti said Panjwar Guru Vishweshra had expressed concern over BJS candidates in the Gujarat assembly polls and "not on her return to the BJP".
She also clarified that she did not seek two-days time to make her stand known on her return to the parent party, but it was for considering fielding candidates for Gujarat polls.
The BJS chief said the party has a parliamentary board to take decisions on such matters, adding it needed at least two- days time to invite everybody to take a decision.
On the alleged corruption involving Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and his wife in the truck purchase scam, she said "more than the chief minister, BJP's credibility was at stake."
