Objecting to Congress President Sonia Gandhi's resignations being projected as an "act of sacrifice", expelled BJP leader Uma Bharti on Friday accused her of attempting to "create anarchy" in the country.

"She (Sonia) wants to create anarchy in this country. She became a victim of her own actions," Bharti told reporters in Bhopal.

The Congress President acted with "vengeance" against Jaya Bachchan and "got her disqualified" from Lok Sabha, while forgetting that she also held an office of profit, Bharti alleged.

To a query, she said Jaya Bachchan's was an "ideal case" and the government should have formed an all-party committee to define office of profit.

"In a country where MPs charge huge sums for putting up questions in Parliament, all posts are offices of profit," she said.

Uma added corruption should be curbed by bringing in the Lokpal Bill with stringent provisions, covering everyone, including the Prime Minister.

Lashing out at the "media" for projecting Sonia Gandhi's resignations as Lok Sabha member and Chairperson of National Advisory Council as an "act of sacrifice," Bharti claimed that this attitude would make the country "slave of Italy."

Mounting an attack on the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh, the former Chief Minister said "its days are numbered".

To a query, she said "I am sorry that I was not able to play my role in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly as it was adjourned ahead of schedule."
