Uma Bharti extends support to Shekhawat

Former Vice-President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat may create a major problem for the BJP as party dissidents and defectors are rallying around him.

The former BJP leader Uma Bharti and her mentor Govindachara on Thursday met Shekhawat and offered him support in the Lok Sabha elections. Uma is leader of Bharatiya Janshakti Party.

Her meeting with Shekhawat assumes significance because dissidents like Madan Lal Khurana and Kalyan Singh who are sulking after they felt sidelined in the party, can join hands, say insiders.

Uma Bharti has said that Janshakti would support Shekhawat in all possible ways. The former Vice-President had alarmed the BJP leaderwhip when he had recently questioned the need to project LK Advani as Prime Minister even before the polls.

Various sections are propping up Gujarat Chief Minister Narenda Modi's name for the post of Prime Minister. Now, with Shekhawat asserting himself as one of the senior most leaders in the party, the problems for Advani are far from over.
