Bhopal: Senior Congress leader Ajay Singh on Monday hit out at BJP Vice President Uma Bharti for her remarks that the 'final rites' of Congress would be performed during the Assembly elections later this year. Uma on Monday said that she had decimated Congress in 2003 and added that, "in 2008 its last rites took place. In 2013, I am sure its pind-daan' (rituals after cremation) will be performed."

Ajay Singh said in a statement that "Uma's last rites as a politician had been conducted during her life time by the BJP which had exported her to Uttar Pradesh." He added that, "It appears that the BJP Vice President has forgotten the humiliation she had to undergo when she was forced out of that party."

"Uma neither believes in democracy nor does she have any respect for people anywhere," he alleged while adding that "she had not visited Charkhari" (Assembly seat in Mahoba district of Uttar Pradesh) after winning election from there.

Ajay Singh said that Uma Bharti's last political rites had been conducted when the BJP ousted her from the party.

"Uma Bharti did not attend the session of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly even for a single day and has thus performed the last rites of democracy and the mandate given to her," said Ajay, the Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly.
