Yashwant Sinha Quits BJP, Says India’s Democracy Is In Danger

Former Union finance minister Yashwant Sinha said today he’s quitting the BJP because the NDA, which it leads, is undermining democratic institutions.
“Today I am taking ‘sanyas’ from any kind of party politics, today I am ending all ties with the BJP,” Sinha said at an event in Patna.

“Democracy in India is in great danger,” he added.
Yashwant Sinha said he will now try to unite all non-BJP parties. “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,” he added.

“I’m breaking all my relations with BJP and I’ll not take any position in the future,” says Yashwant Sinha at the first convention of his newly floated Rashtriya Manch (National Forum).

“The biggest danger that the nation faces today is the state and future of democracy”, says Fin Minister under Vajpayee, Yashwant Sinha as he resigns from the BJP. He had recently written to party colleagues to stand up to Modi/Shah before nation is ruined

Yashwant Sinha had held the Finance and External Affairs portfolios in Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s cabinet between 1998 and 2004.
