Farrukhabad, Nov 26 (UNI) Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kalyan Singh today requested the BJP organisation to call back firebrand leader Uma Bharti without any prejudice.
The rebel sadhvi, presently Bhartiya Jan Shakti Party (BJS) chief, should return to BJP, as the party needs such leaders, Mr Singh said at a programme here.
Interestingly, the function was attended both by Mr Singh and the expelled party leader Ms Bharti.
''Uma Bharti should return to the party soon...efforts are underway to bring her back, as BJP needs her,'' Mr Singh further underlined.
Ms Bharti, also former Madhya Pradesh chief minister, had left BJP and formed the BJS party.
