Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti will campaign for BJP “as and when required” and there is no question of cancelling her rally, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said today, dismissing suggestions that she was being pulled out after her controversial remarks at a public meeting here.

Warning that their protest on the issue of controversial remarks made by Jyoti, who is Minister of State for food processing industry , will “boomerang”, Naidu, who is the Parliamentary Affairs Minister, accused the opposition parties of repeatedly changing their stance and ruled out outright her resignation.

Naidu emphasised that Jyoti will continue to campaign for the BJP for the upcoming elections adding there should be no confusion in anybody’s mind.

“She will campaign as and when required. All other leaders will also campaign for the party. There is no question of cancelling anybody’s rally. It all depends on local permission…. Most our MPs are also going to campaign in the coming days in Delhi in a big way,” Naidu said.

Jyoti was to address a rally yesterday at Gole Market area in Central Delhi as part of party chief Amit Shah’s directive to around 300 BJP MPs to campaign in the city for the upcoming assembly polls but only BJP MP from Aligarh Satish Gautam came there.

Naidu claimed that Congress leaders who had made objectionable statements in the past got away because they were all “big” leaders but Jyoti was being targeted as she was “making a big impact”.

“Someone from a village….one woman, first timer to Parliament…. now they are trying to take on her because they are afraid she is influencing people in Uttar Pradesh in a big way,” Naidu said.

“I am unable to understand what is the demand of the opposition. They keep on changing their stand. One day they say apology. Second day they say, no, PM should come and then PM comes, third day they say we want resignation. And they will say tomorrow some other resignation. We cannot oblige them, people have given us the mandate,” Naidu told reporters outside Parliament.

He said the minister had herself promptly expressed regret and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi had spoken on the matter and the “issue is closed”.

“But you come out and then you demonstrate outside just to get some publicity,” Naidu said referring to the protest outside Parliament where MPs led by Rahul Gandhi wore black bands as “unfortunate”.

        A political party as brazen an BJP in their mission to divide and win votes can only revoice at the prospect of getting more votes if this sadhvi campaigns. Quite natural. When it comes to scheming out political gains out of such divisive remarks and posturing, BJP is very ruthless and very brazen.
