While addressing a gathering, Prasad said, "The BJP is no longer a Hindu party. It is now a militant outfit. Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and Swamy Aseemanand who share a close association with the BJP are now behind bars because of their involvement in the Malegaon blasts. This incident is reflective of the BJP''s thought process and involvement in the killing of people in the blast. Now, the Hindu as well as the Muslims fraternity will denounce the BJP."
On the other hand, BJP President Nitin Gadkari raised question over Congress President Sonia Gandhi's unwanted protection to Union Home Minister P Chidamabaram in the 2G scam case.
"If A Raja (former telecom minister) is behind bars, then why is Chidambaram roaming around freely?" Gadkari asked.
"I have come here with expectations. I hold a very strong visionary dream for the entire country for which I need to strengthen my hands that can be possible with your support. I urge you to get togetherm," said BJP leader Varun Gandhi in Pilibhit.
The upcoming UP assembly election is a big opportunity for the major parties to revive power over the country's fifth largest and most populous state.
