Former Delhi Chief Minister Madan Lal Khurana on Saturday announced that he would launch a movement backed by expelled leader Uma Bharti next month to revive what he called vanishing "Parivar" traditions in the BJP. Khurana also rebutted reports that he was hoping the party would revoke his suspension.

"Such reports have tried to create a false impression that I am hungry for some party position, which I am not. Instead, I would launch a Jan Andolan or a front which would offer a platform to all party members feeling frustrated over the vanishing `Parivar' traditions of the BJP. Such a front is likely to have support from Uma Bharti," Khurana said.

The former Delhi Chief Minister has already announced that he would launch a 'Delhi Bachao Morcha' against court-ordered demolitions and sealing of illegal buildings.

"The movement or the front I will launch in the first week of April will also aim to address serious concerns about the BJP's deviation from its core Sangh foundation," he said.
