New Delhi: In a bid to put up a strong fight in Rae Bareli, BJP is considering pitting its firebrand Hindutva leader Uma Bharti against Sonia Gandhi.

Top party sources confirmed that the party is “seriously considering” a proposal to shift Uma Bharti from Jhansi to Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh.

BJP has already announced Bharti's candidature from Jhansi, even though the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister was keen to contest from Bhopal after BJP veteran L K Advani decided to contest from Gandhinagar.

Sources said this will help put up a strong fight to the Congress Vice President in Rae Bareli.
