Lucknow:  Uma Bharti, who returned to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after around six years of estrangement, said the deteriorating law and order along with corruption in the state would be the main issue in the upcoming Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking to reporters here at the party headquarters on Wednesday, she said that Ram temple and Hindutva are the issues related to people’s faith, therefore should not be linked with elections.

Describing Digvijay Singh as Rahul Gandhi’s stepny, she did not even spare the veteran Congress leader who is the Congress in-charge of Uttar Pradesh.

Uma Bharati said the party will fight the elections on the major issues and try to get the state rid of the BSP’s misrule.
