NATIONAL PRESIDENT of the Bharatiya Janshakti Party Uma Bharti said here today that her party would not allow senior BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani to take part in the ‘parikrama’ at Ayodhya.

Venting her ire at the BJP leader she pointed out that Advani during his visit to Pakistan had apologised for the Ayodhya incident and therefore, such a person could not be allowed to take part in the auspicious ceremony of ‘parikrama’ of Ayodhya.

Talking to newsmen on her brief visit to the city the Bharti said that if somehow Advani succeeded in taking part in the ‘parikrama’ she would clean the entire stretch of the ‘parikrama’ with ‘Ganga Jal’.

The Bharatiya Janshakti Party leader also asked Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, former Prime Ministers VP Singh and Chander Shekher to come forward to resolve the Ayodhya dispute.

“All these three leaders have been associated with the Ayodhya movement in some form or the other and, therefore, they must come forward to resolve the dispute,” asserted Bharti.

Replying to a query she objected to her comparison with BJP leader Kalyan Singh and Congress leader Shanker Singh Vaghela.

“I am not a BJP rebel because I left the party due to ideological differences and not because of personal animosity with any BJP leader,” she pointed out.
Criticising the BJP she said the party had deviated from its ideology and it no more advocated for Swadeshi and Hindutva.

She also lashed out at the Samajwadi Party and, in particular, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav and demanded imposition of Central rule in the state before the next Vidha Sabha elections.

“It is my assessment that if the state government is not dismissed then the state could witness violence on large scale in the coming Vidhan Sabha elections,” remarked Bharti.

She also demanded that the coming Vidhan Sabha elections in the state be conducted on the pattern of last Vidhan Sabha elections in Bihar under the complete control of Central forces.

“I will personally meet Governor TV Rajeswar in New Delhi to demand dismissal of the state government,” she said.

About the proposed meet of all office-bearers of her party in Lucknow on December 6 and 7, she said, “On the occasion the party will declare its 100 candidates for the coming Vidhan Sabha elections.”

Candidates are being declared in advance so that they could avail the extra time to build up base in their respective constituencies, she said.

Scotching rumours about her return to the BJP, Bharti said that BJP leaders were spreading such rumours in Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal to dissuade leaders from joining her party and misguide the voters.

She also advised BJP leaders Murli Manohar Joshi and Kalyan Singh to leave their party and join Bharatiya Janshakti Party.

Replying to a query related to Ayodhya she said that her party’s stand would be in accordance with that of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
