Bhopal, Oct 28 (UNI) BJP President Rajnath Singh today said the party did not face any challenge from expelled leader and Bhartiya Jan Shakti President Uma Bharti.
He exuded confidence the party would win by-elections to Vidisha Lok Sabha and Malehra Assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh scheduled for October 30.
Talking to reporters during a brief stopover here en route to Vidisha for campaigning, Mr Singh said development remained the main poll plank. ''The BJP is optimistic of victory at both places,'' he said.
When pointed out the backwardness of Vidisha, represented in Lok Sabha by Mr Shivraj Singh Chouhan for five terms, the party chief said development would pick up since Mr Chouhan was now the chief minister.
Meanwhile, state BJP chief Satyanarayan Jatia said the district administration would probe into Bhartiya Jan Shakti's complaint that the BJP workers had allegedly attempted to damage the helicopter of Ms Bharti in Malehra constituency yesterday.
