The expelled BJP leader accompanied LK Advani to the Somnath Shiv Temple on his customary annual visit to mark the anniversary of the day the rath yatra to Ayodhya that took off on Sep 25, 1990.
Similar speculations of the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister's return to the Party arose in June 2010 when Uma Bharti was spotted coming out of the Raipur's Mana airport with LK Advani, former party president Rajnath Singh and party spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad.
Even before this, an indication of the prominent Hindutva leader jumping back to BJP arose when she resigned from Bharatiya Janashakti in March 2010.
Uma Bharti founded the Bharatiya Janashakti in 2005 after she was sacked by BJP.
Later in June 2010, there were reports that a saffron party's parliamentary board would decide on Uma Bharti's return.
