ASSERTING THAT she does not intend to hurt the BJP’s ideology and will not make such an attempt, the expelled Bharatiya Janata Party leader Uma Bharti today said she will rest only after forming a government in Madhya Pradesh. She was addressing a public gathering here.

Earlier, Bharti’s ‘Janadesh Yatra’ entered Hanumana in Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa district today. She traversed 100 km from Hanumana to Rewa and addressed about a dozen small public gatherings en route here where she addressed a large gathering. The fiery sanyasin said she had not diverted from the path she had chosen.

“Ram ka nam lekar zinda hun, Ram ka nam lekar marungi, lekin Jinnah ki mazaar par phool chadhane nahi jaungi (I am living on Ram’s name, I will die taking Ram’s name, but will not go to place flowers on Jinnah’s tomb),” she said.

Reiterating that she had toiled to unseat the Congress and bring the Bharatiya Janata Party to power in 2003 State Assembly election, the sadhvi said the Bharatiya Janata Party central leadership has handed over the reins to ‘corrupt’ people under pressure.

She said her dream to develop the State has remained unfulfilled. But she will return to power and rest only after the State is developed.

The former chief minister said she will visit every Assembly segment and urge legislators to pressurise the government to fulfil poll promises. In case the promises were not fulfilled, she will ask the MLAs to vacate seats and pave way for another government.

Alleging that the government was trying to make her ‘yatra’ unsuccessful, she said she had been expelled by the party but public had accepted her. Earlier, former Union minister Prahlad Patel and other leaders addressed the meeting.
