NEW DELHI: BJP Leader and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha surprised everyone by his statement against Modi Government (targeting Finance Minister Jaitley and his policies) and he revealed that there is an atmosphere of fear within the party making it a very important revelation. The question however is that why there is an atmosphere of fear within BJP ? Why many BJP leaders and workers are fearing to speak truth?
Yashwant Sinha chose to break his silence and many important facts emerged from his statement, some of which are as below:
First revelation of Yashwant Sinha is that the economy under this government is in a complete mess and although there are many leaders (according to Sinha) who feel that the Modi Government have made a mess of the economy but they are afraid to speak in public.
“I shall be failing in my national duty if I did not speak even now against the mess the finance minister has made of the economy” said Yashwant Sinha.
This statement has from a very senior BJP leader who chose to go public at a time when common people are feeling the pressure of inflation and rising prices. The question is why the Modi Government is not accepting the fact and indulging in fake propaganda?
Statement of Yashwant Sinha also indicates the atmosphere of fear prevalent in BJP. He said ”I am also convinced that what I am going to say reflects the sentiments of a large number of people in BJP and elsewhere who are not speaking out of fear”.
Such words are clear indication of an atmosphere of terror and fear created within the party and outside. The Modi government from the day one has been created such an atmosphere in the country incidents like mob lynching, violence in campus, suicide of Rohit Vemula, terrorism of Gau Raksha Dals, murder of Gauri Lankesh, lathi charge on the girls of BHU being some recent one’s.
Now the fear prevalent within BJP has also been exposed by no other than a very senior BJP leader like Yashwant Sinha. Thus the nation must pay attention to what he is saying.
Former Finance Minister rightly pointed out that when Arun Jaitley became Finance Minister, the global oil market saw a recession and due to depressed crude oil prices, he had crores of Rupees which he did not derive benefit from and the oil bonanza has been wasted.
The country is asking why the fall in crude oil prices have not been transferred to the common man? Why Indians did not benefit from the lower crude oil rates? Is there any selfish interest of oil companies in this propaganda?
This may not be coincidence that Yashwant Sinha chose to speak at the time when the common man is on the streets agitating against the rise in petrol and diesel prices.
