BJP rules out Kalyan's return

Speaking to newsmen here, former BJP national president Rajnath Singh strongly hinted that the party would not let Kalyan Singh re-enter its ranks.

“Nitin Gadkari had not taken names of any individual,” Singh quipped when the new leader’s intentions of welcoming back the party’s ex-leaders was pointed to him.
In response to another query, Singh made it clear that the state leadership would be taken into confidence before taking any decision on the return of any former party leader.
A majority of Uttar Pradesh BJP leaders are against the return of Kalyan Singh to the party.
Singh, who had severed his ties with the Samajwadi Party recently, is all set to announce the name of his new political outfit here during his birthday on January 5.
Rajnath Singh also demanded scrapping of the Ranganath Mishra commission report, which calls for reservation for the religious minorities and underlined the need to “re-define” minorityism.

“The report will sow the seeds of separatism in the country and must be scrapped,” he demanded.
The BJP leader also criticised what he claimed as the attempts to give more autonomy to the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir. “The government should not succumb to the fundamentalists,” he said.

He also came down heavily on the government for reportedly withdrawing troops from the state saying that the ground situation in the state was not conducive to troop withdrawal yet.
