After Yashwant Sinha quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the party spokesperson has said that Sinha’s comments and writings made it clear that he was acting at the Congress’ behest.
“His comments sounded more like that of a Congress leader or somebody working at the behest of the opposition party,” BJP spokesperson and national media head Anil Baluni said.
“His latest viewpoints, as well as interviews on TV channels, did indicate that he was no more a BJP member rather a puppet of Congress. Though he has quit today, in his mind he had left the party long back,” Baluni added.
Sinha, the former Finance Minister on Saturday broke all ties with the BJP and said that the ‘Democracy in the country was in danger.’ Sinha has been publicly opposing the Modi government’s economic policies and style of functioning.
“I’m breaking all my relations with BJP now and I’ll not take any position in the future.”
He added, “Today I am taking ‘sanyas’ from any kind of party politics, today I am ending all ties with the BJP.”
Sinha also slammed present government for influencing election commission and investigative agencies in the country at the first convention of his newly floated Rashtriya Manch (National Forum).
