Haridwar: In order to reap political benefits in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and firebrand Bharatiya Janata Party leader Uma Bharti on Wednesday met Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev.

According to sources, Uma made strategy with the Yoga Guru to highlight the issues of blackmoney and corruption in the upcoming elections in the state.

BJP has pinned hopes on Uma to recreate the magic of the 1990s when the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and forward castes came together to propel the saffron party to power. That is why she has been made party’s state in-charge.

It is worth mentioning that Ramdev is going to start Swabhiman Yatras from January, 10. The yatras will pass through all the five poll-bound states.
