Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will be campaigning in the Uttar Pradesh elections, Bharatiya Janata Party president Nitin Gadkari told media persons here Friday.
Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the International Conference on Cooperatives, Mr. Gadkari said the party would soon fix a schedule for Mr. Modi's campaigning in Uttar Pradesh.
Referring to Priyanka Gandhi’s campaigning in Rae Bareli and the reported political aspirations of her husband Robert Vadra, Mr. Gadkari said the Congress offered no scope for the emergence of any alternative leadership from outside as if it was the private property of the Gandhi-Nehru family.
He also ruled out any possibility of the BJP entering into an alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) or the Samajwadi Party (SP) if it failed to secure a majority in Uttar Pradesh.
Regarding the Karnataka “porngate”, the BJP president said he had spoken to Karnataka Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda on the matter.
“The party is conducting an enquiry into the incident and only after that any further action would be taken,” he said about the three BJP MLAs caught watching porn in the Karnataka assembly.
