"The era of Atal and Advani has come to an end in BJP and now personality cult has gripped the party which has been captured by foxes," former Prime Minister Atal Bihar Vajpayee's niece Shukla said here. "Earlier, it used to be party government now its Modi sarkar. When Modi failed to follow 'pati dharma' how could he fulfil 'Rastradharma'?" she asked.
Shukla also said the moral values in BJP had vanished due to which she had to leave the party after being there for 32 years. She said Congress had honoured Vajpayee by fielding her from Bilaspur seat in Chhatisgarh. Appealing to the people of Lucknow to defeat BJP, Shukla said, "Now they are talking of Gujarat model and not about Atal model. You all should wake up and vote against the party."
