Bhopal, Nov 19 (UNI) Rashtriya Swabhiman Andolan (RSA) chief and former BJP ideologue K N Govindacharya today said he will support and discharge all responsibilities given to him by Bharatiya Jan Shakti (BJS) President Uma Bharti as party incharge.

Admitting that he regarded Ms Bharti as his 'Spiritual Guru', Mr Govindacharya told reporters here that he would cooperate in the policies of the BJS.

He claimed that the period of Ms Bharti as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister was the best part of the five-year-rule of the BJP.

Defending Ms Bharti for slapping his party worker Anil Rai in Chhindwara recently, he pointed out that everybody had a limit to his or her tolerance power beyond which anger erupted.

There were numerous instances when tolerance of several senior political leaders gave way due to circumstances.

Mr Govindacharya said he was venturing into politics after a long hiatus of eight years. Hence, he had not planned any strategy for the ongoing assembly polls in the state.

Speaking about choice between the Congress or the BJP in case of hung assembly, he said a decision would taken in this regard when the time was ripe.

''We cannot name a baby before its birth,'' he said, adding that scientific style of functioning needs to be evolved to secure idealism.

Replying a query whether he was ousted from the Rashtriya Swyamsewak Sangh, he said that he took a 'study and tour' break from the Sangh and remained busy in the activities of the RSA.

Mr Govindacharya said his statement of calling former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee as 'Mukhouta' (mask) was distorted and the RSS merely asked him to maintain the dignity and goodwill of the leaders which was apt.

''I don't have any grudges with the RSS,'' he said candidly, adding that he has been in continuous contact with the RSS though he took and followed his own decisions.

He said that the RSA should not be compared to the RSS, as the former is not its parallel unit.

''Sangh cultures people and I am its ordinary worker,'' he added.
