She was on her first visit to the capital city of Uttar Pradesh.
Making it amply clear that, Hindutva is going to be the cornerstone of her campaign in Uttar Pradesh for the 2012 Assembly elections, Uma Bharti gave a clarion call to the party workers and said, “Jo Ram ka hoga, wahi kaam ka hoga."
Referring to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo, Mayawati as “sister", the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said that she would oppose the former's plan on the Ganga expressway project and raise voice against the atrocities on farmers whose land had been acquired for the Yamuna expressway.
Bharati said, “Party leaders in UP told me that the Mayawati government does not share its plans about the state. But now she will have to now because we are living in a democracy. We will fight for this."
Stating that Mayawati has disappointed the people of Uttar Pradesh, who had voted her to power in 2007, the BJP leader said, “But my sister could not meet the expectations and now time has come for change."
Giving ample demonstration of her rhetoric skills, the sanyasin-turned-politician said that in Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party could not be an option and that the Congress was not even in the race.
Exhorting party-cadres to connect with the masses, she asked them to go to the villages to bring better results to the BJP in the Assembly Elections due next year.
It can be recalled that Uma Bharti was re-inducted into the BJP, earlier this month after a gap of six years. Bharti was expelled from the saffron party after being given a show-cause notice by the BJP leadership for raising objections to L K Advani's praise of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. She had even slammed Advani for 'indiscipline' and had demanded his expulsion from the party.
