BJP accepts Malegaon blast accused is party worker

The Madhya Pradesh BJP has accepted that Shyamlal Sahu, an Indore resident, who was arrested for blasts in Malegaon and Modasa, with Sadhwi Pragya Bharati, was a party leader.

PWD Minister and BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya went to the house of Sahu. He also said that the BJP worker was framed. This is a sudden change from the earlier stand when the party was not willing to accept any links with the blast accused.

But the BJP had no other option. Uma Bharati is speaking on behalf of the blast accused and this has caused anger among BJP workers who feel that they party abandons them when they are caught.

With elections just a month away from now, the party can't afford its cadre getting angry and restless. Already, BJP rebel MLAs are joining the Bharatiya Janashakti Party and BJP can't afford more trouble. Thus even a blast accused is now being defended. Time will tell if this strategy pays off.
