BJP devoid of principles: Uma
Jabalpur, Nov 19 (UNI) Accusing the BJP of doing politics devoid of principles, Bharatiya Jan Shakti President Uma Bharti today said her party was determined to tread on the path shown by Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay and Shayama Prasad Mukherjee.
Addressing a public meeting organised by the party the BJS Chief, said the Shivraj Singh Chouhan Government had forsaken principles and alleged that rampant irregularities took place during Vidisha and Malehra bypolls.
She expressed hope that the BJS will form a ''principled'' government in the state after next assembly elections.
Reiterating that state ministers had planned to murder her and the attack on her during Malehra by-poll was a part of the conspiracy, she said the police's advice to wear bullet-proof jacket was proof enough.
Ms Bharti said she had decided not to fight election for some time and described it as an appropriate decision.
She claimed that she would have been killed, had she contested the by-elections.
BJS General Secretary Prahlad Patel and state BJS President Raghunandan Sharma accused the government of involving in corrupt practices and claimed that the public base of the BJP was falling.
