After External Affairs Minister Sushma Swarja had announced that she will not contest the Lok Sabha Polls of 2019, another minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi government, Uma Bharti, has  now decided not to contest the 2019 Polls.

The senior BJP leader’s announcement came days after her cabinet colleague Sushma Swaraj said she won’t contest the next LS polls.

Bharti said she will instead concentrate on the issues of Ram temple in Ayodhya and cleanliness of the River Ganga for the next one-and-a half years.

Bharti said she would “embark on a pilgrimage to devote time for Ganga river and Lord Ram by leaving power”.

The Drinking Water and Sanitation Minister, however, clarified that she was not quitting politics.

It may be re- called  that External Affairs Minister Swaraj, who represents Vidisha Lok Sabha seat in Madhya Pradesh, had last month announced that she would not contest the 2019 polls due to health reasons. Incidentally, both Bharti and Swaraj are Lok Sabha candidates from Madhya Pradesh.
