"My respect towards BJP has grown. They have shown that ideals that they claim to stand for, they can abide them also. By accepting their mistake and rethinking on their decision, a national party like BJP has earned the respect of people," Katara's mother said.

The induction of D P Yadav on February 20 had stirred a hornet's nest within the party and opposition also pointing an accusing finger at the BJP.
