Yashwant Sinha, former member of the ruling BJP has said that the opposition rally ‘United India’ which is being held in Kolkata, said that the event is not against ‘one man but the ideology of the current government.’
“The rally is not about removing one man from power, we came together to defeat an ideology. We know that whatever has happened is a danger for our democracy,” Sinha said while addressing the mega opposition rally.
Addressing an audience of lakhs, Sinha said that so many opposition leaders had gathered at the mega-rally not to remove one man, but the kind of thought and ideology he stands for. “Modiji is not the issue here, issues are the issue. There is no democratic institution in this country that this government has not compromised,” he said.
More than 20 leaders, including former prime minister of India HD Deve Gowda, former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha, Shatrughan Sinha and Arun Shourie; three present chief ministers Arvind Kejriwal, Chandrababu Naidu and HD Kumaraswamy; and former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah, Akhilesh Yadav and Gegong Apang will attend the meeting, TMC sources said. Most of them have already arrived in the city.
