New Delhi: BJP National Vice President and senior leader has cautioned the party over joining hands with independent candidate Gopal Kanda in Haryana. In a series, Uma Bharti said the BJP should refrain from compromising on its moral values by taking support from Gopal Kanda.

Bharati said, “Whether Gopal Kanda is innocent or guilty will be decided by the courts, his winning the election does not free him of crimes that he might have committed.”
