The British National Party has been accused of hijacking a local campaign in the West Midlands against plans to build a Hindu temple, the BBC Radio 4 Today programme reported this morning.
The BNP says it intends to put up two candidates for next year's local election in Tiverdale, Birmingham where the temple is planned and has been delivering leaflets to local houses.
At a recent public meeting local campaigners against the temple sought to distance themselves from the BNP commenting it had never been a racist issue, but an issue of the temple being built on green fields.
Madeleine Parsons, local campaign organiser against the temple, says people have told her they may vote for the BNP in next year's council elections in protest at the temple.
