Complete Coverage: Assembly Polls

Bharatiya Janashakti Party president Uma Bharti on Tuesday charged the BJP with using money power in a big way and misusing the administration to ensure its victory in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls.

Addressing a press conference, Bharti said that an election is won by three things and these are people's support, money and selective use of the administration.

 She claimed that her party had enormous popular support but it lacked money power and obviously could not use the administration in its favour.

Bharti said it was strange that a Chief Minister against whom a FIR had been filed could claim that he had a clean image.

 She said that the assembly election results showed that poll can be won even by spending crores of rupees on advertisements.

 The BJP chief said that in many cases, her party could not give any money to its nominees who had to find for themselves from their own resources.

 She claimed that in Madhya Pradesh [Images], the BJP had become the B team of the Congress.

Bharti said that her party would contest the Lok Sabha elections and added that a decision on whether or not she will contest them will be taken by the party.
