Hardoi (UP), Feb 11: Former UP chief minister Kalyan Singh today hit out at Uma Bharti for being with the BJP, saying despite calling herself his daughter she was working with a party trying to “kill him politically.”
“Uma calls herself as my ‘beti' (daugther) but it is an irony that she is working with the BJP, which is trying to kill me politically”, the former Hindutva leader said addressing an election meeting here.
“What type of ‘beti' is she, who is working against her father. Either she wins or gets defeated (in elections in Uttar Pradesh), BJP will send her to Madhya Pradesh again”, said Singh, who is now convenor of Jankranti Party, an outfit floated by himself.
Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi for promising to voters that given a chance, Congress would change the face of Uttar Pradesh, he said the young leader should first change Raebareli and then talk about changing the state.
Criticizing Congress, SP, BJP and BSP, Singh said leaders of these parties never did any development work while in power but always remained busy filling their pockets with funds allotted for development projects.
Singh said that he was not against the Muslims but certainly wanted equal treatment for all castes and communities in the interest of the nation.
