Obama slogan for the ultra right

NDTV.com: Uma dreams of becoming India’s Obama

Bharatiya Janshakti Party president Uma Bharti’s latest slogan is “Yes we can”. It worked for Obama, Uma is now asking, why wont it do wonders for her too?

“When I saw him taking oath, you cannot believe I thought I was taking oath. I felt I have become President of America. I identify so much with him,” said Uma Bharti.

Dreaming to be India’s
Obama to many that may sound strange given that the two have little in common.

Where Obama swept the US elections, Uma was once the BJP’s poster girl in Madhya Pradesh now struggling to find feet just before the elections. Despite that she is eyeing the top political job in the country.

On being asked, do you think you have it in yourself to be a prime minister, Uma Bharatisaid I can go gaga over myself when I am talking off the record.

She is often been accused of inciting communal sentiment, be it the Babri Masjid demolition or hoisting the Tricolour in Hubli for which she was jailed. And now she has backed Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragya Thakur.
