"Whether Gopal Kanda is guilty or not, it will be decided after due legal process. However, his election victory doesn't give him a clean chit. There are several factors associated with an election victory. I urge BJP not to forget moral values," she tweeted.

"We have a powerful leader like Narendra Modi. Not only our nation but also the world is with Modi ji. He has established a nationalistic force. Make sure we form a government in Haryana, but always remember that we have people with clean image just like our BJP workers," she said.

At present, Uma Bharti is on a mission to clean up the Ganga.

"I am at the ghats of Ganga. I don't have TV. I am receiving information on my mobile phone. I have been informed that we are forming government in haryana. It's good news," Bharti added.
