Uma Bharti will contest from Jhansi: BJP
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said its leader Uma Bharti will contest the Lok Sabha election from the Jhansi constituency in Uttar Pradesh as against rumours that said she will be fielded from the Rae Bareilly seat against Sonia Gandhi.
Baba Ramdev had also suggested that Uma Bharti should take on Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareilly.
"We respect what Baba Ramdev had suggested BJP but the party has decided that Uma Bharti will contest from Jhansi, " BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said.
