Bhopal disheartens Uma Bharati
Posted March 13, 2012on:
Once known as a firebrand leader, Uma Bharati has lost her fire. Her visit to Bhopal on the eve of the Holi would have gone unnoticed but for a few of media persons who have been enjoying her confidence. It was with high hopes that she made her first visit to the capital of her home State after her victory from Charkhari constituency of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly before she went to Lucknow or Delhi. The cold reception the former chief minister received here must have broken her heart. The BJP leaders just ignored her.
In her interaction with the media persons, the Sadhvi all but expressed her total disenchantment with Madhya Pradesh and her party leaders in the State. She said she would not talk about Madhya Pradesh or its situation, nor would she visit the party office.
So frustrated was she feeling by the attitude of the party leaders and workers of Madhya Pradesh that she went on to announce that Charkhari was now her karma-bhoomi (place of activities), that she would live there and that she wanted to be born only in Charkhari in every life. At the national level, party president Nitin Gadkari was the only leader with whom she could share her thoughts, she said.
