Uma Bharti to campaign for Advani

The mercurial Uma Bharti has now offered her unconditional support to LK Advani, the man whom she had earlier pilloried for visiting the grave of MA Jinnah in Pakistan.

Bharti told journalists on Wednesday that it was her religious duty to support LK Advani and ensure that he became the Prime Minister of India. "Though I am not a big leader, I don't want to harm him".

There should not be a single vote against Advani because of me, she said. But the future of her Bharatiya Janshakti Party now remains uncertain. The party workers are also unsure about their next step.

Bharti has said that she will not join the BJP. But this appears just a step before the final rapprochement. Else, how oculd the Sadhvi, who was using harsh words for Advani and his party, have a sudden change of heart?
