Yashwant Sinha Accused BJP Of Trying To ‘Subvert Democracy’ In Karnataka, But Got Roasted For His Hypocrisy

In April 2018, disgruntled BJP leader Yashwant Sinha quit the party officially. While announcing his decision he said he was not happy with the current leadership of the party and the direction in which the Indian politics is headed at the moment.

In the recently held Karnataka Elections, the saffron party emerged as a the single largest party in the Assembly, securing 104 seats in the 224-member House, just short of majority. It has to prove its strength on the floor of the House within 15 days. B S Yeddyurappa was sworn in Chief Minister of Karnataka on May 17, a day after the Governor Valubhai Vala invited the BJP to form government in the state.


Following the government formation, Yashwant Sinha has tweeted claiming that he is very glad that he is no longer part of a party that is undermining the entire existence of democracy. He further ‘warned’ that there will be a repetition of the same scene in Karnataka if the BJP fails to get the majority in Lok Shaba in the 2019 elections. Here’s what he tweeted:



A social media user didn’t waste time to take him down the memory lane and expose his hypocrisy. This is what he tweeted:



Sinha himself was part of the dissident group in 1990 for the then prime minister Chandra Sekhar. He broke away from VP Singh led Janata Dal government to gain power at centre by joining hands with Congress.


He was appropriately ‘rewarded’ for his decision in form of finance ministry. When he was himself a part of such glaring subversion of democracy then it’s utterly hypocritical that he will raise questions and attack others. Twitterati was quick to support the user who pointed this fact. Here’s how they reacted:











What’s your take on the entire matter?
