Former BJP Minister, Yashwant Sinha, today in Patna announced his ‘sanyas’ (retirement) from BJP & politics.
“Today I am ending all ties with the BJP… I am taking sanyas (retirement) from any kind of party politics”
Yashwant Sinha made this announcement while sharing the dias with RJD, Congress leaders & BJP’s Shatrughan Sinha. Sinha said he has took this decision due the party’s condition.
Yashwant Sinha said
“I am quitting the BJP because of the party’s condition. As you have already seen the recent Parliament session – it was the shortest session in the history.”
The announcement was made at a meeting of Rashtriya Manch, his own, recently formed organisation which he claims will stay apolitical.
Sinha made it clear that he’d not join politics, but said that he’d make other parties together.
“I will not join any political party and will have nothing to do with party-politics. I am not an aspirant for any top post and I am making it clear here that I am not at all interested to seek any post,”
Yashwant Sinha had been one of the people inside the BJP who criticised BJP openly & thoroughly. Sinha, who had joined BJP in Nineties was sidelined by BJP post 2014 elections, which was seen as a punishment for opposing Narendra Modi, back then.
Yashwant Sinha had formed the ‘Rashtra Manch’ on 30th January 2018 and has made his announcement on 21st April 2018, his son Jayant Sinha’s birthday, who still is a BJP Minister.
