Former Union Minister and expelled BJP leader Uma Bharti on Friday said that she will announce five 'sankalp' (pledges) on the bank of the Saryu river on Saturday and claimed these would decide "the future course of Indian politics".

"The five pledges will decide the future course of Indian politics," Bharti, whose 'Ram-Roti yatra', from Bhopal to Ayodhya concluded on Friday, said while addressing a public meeting.

Bharti's yatra was accompanied by numerous supporters, including BJP leaders from MP, Chattisgarh, Bihar, Assam and other states.

Former Union Minister and yatra incharge Prahlad Patel said the 700-kilometre yatra remained peaceful all along.

The yatra had started on November 28 last, and covered northern Madhya Pradesh, about a dozen districts in Uttar Pradesh, including Mahoba, Banda, Sultanpur, Rae Bareli and Faizabad.

Bharti would address the 'sankalp sabha' on the banks of Saryu river and make a circumambulation around the holy city on Saturday.
