Not to contest 2019 polls, taking 'sanyas' from politics: Uma Bharti
Close on the heels of Union Minister Sushma Swaraj announcing her decision not to contest the next Lok Sabha polls, Central Minister Uma Bharti on Tuesday said she too would not join the 2019 election fray.
Uma Bharti told the media that although she had decided not to contest the parliamentary elections, she was not taking 'sanyas' from active politics yet.
"I'll start work for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and for the cause of holy Ganga from January 1," she said.
