New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party leader Uma Bharti today stated that she will not resign from her post of Union Minister because the charges of conspiracy in the Babri Masjid demolition case have not been proved against her. Union Minister also said that she is not among one of those who are greedy for power as earlier than this she has resigned as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh.




“I am not one of those who are greedy for power. I resigned as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh after a case was registered against me in the Tiranga (national flag) case,” Bharti, Union Water Resources Minister, told reporters.




Her remarks came after the Supreme Court revived the conspiracy charge in the Babri Masjid demolition case against her and senior BJP leaders L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, and Kalyan Singh, who is Rajasthan Governor, among others.




Asked whether she would resign as Union Minister as the Congress party has demanded her resignation, Bharti said, “The charge has not been proved.”




Restoring the conspiracy charge in the demolition case, a bench of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman also transferred the trial from Rae Bareli to Lucknow.
