Uma to embark on yet another yatra

Making it clear that there would be no compromise with the Bharatiya Janata Party leadership, expelled leader Uma Bharti Saturday said she would embark on a fresh 90-day march from February to drum up public support in her favour, an apparent move towards launching a separate political outfit.
Concluding her 48-day-long 'Ram-Roti Yatra' in Ayodhya, Bharti continued her attack against BJP president Lal Kishenchand Advani by alleging that BJP had lost its ideological base on which the organisation was formed and asked Rajnath Singh to launch a separate outfit under the leadership of the former deputy prime minister.
The firebrand leader, who stormed into the national political scene by playing a prominent role in the Ram temple movement, said her future life would be guided by five principles -- Swadeshi, Suraksha, Swabhimaan, Suchita and Suraaj -- and asserted that she would seek public support for these principles.
"I will embark on a 90-day 'Jan Adesh Yatra' on February 6 from to Vindya Vahini to Chitrakoot to seek public support. My future political life would depend on this yatra and if I get enough public support, I will announce a definite direction to my political life at Chitrakoot," she told reporters in Ayodhya.
The march would cover Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Assam and Bihar and south Indian states, she said adding, the aim of the yatra would be to gauge the public mood in her favour.
