Former Union Finance Minister as well as the Defense Minister in Atal Bihari Vajpayee government and now the Trinamool All India Vice-President, Yashwant Sinha has attacked the Prime Minister and the BJP for the alleged Ram Janmabhoomi land scam. The Samajwadi Party and the Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday accused the Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust of a major land scam in which the price of a piece of land changed from ₹2 crore to ₹18.5 crore in 10 minutes. However, the trust has denied all the allegations against them. And with this scam, the opposition has started targeting BJP.
On Monday morning, Trinamool All India Vice-President Yashwant Sinha wrote on his Twitter handle, “Ram ka saath, Modi ka vishwas aur hamara vikas. Had hi ho gayee. Ram ko bhi nahi chhora. Ab kya bacha? Modi hai to mumkin hai (With Ram, Modi’s trust and our development. He crossed all boundaries. He did not leave Ram either. What is left?)”.
Before the Bengal elections, when everyone leaving TMC to join the BJP, Yashwant Sinha surprised everyone by joining the TMC. During Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s tenure, Yashwant Sinha was the Union Finance Minister as well as the Defense Minister in the BJP government. However, after leaving the old party and joining the Trinamool, Yashwant said, “There is a huge difference between the BJP of the Vajpayee era and the present BJP.” Vajpayee never discriminated. However, the Modi government is running arbitrarily. Their goal is to win the election in three ways. Since then, Yashwant has been seen attacking his old party regularly.
Following the Supreme Court order, the Modi government formed a trust in February 2020 called ‘Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra’. As per the order of the apex court of the country, about 60 acres of land was given to the trust for the construction of Ram Mandir. Former Samajwadi Party MLA Pawan Pandey on Sunday complained at a press conference that the land had been corrupted with the help of some BJP leaders and trust members. The same allegation was made by UP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh. In Uttar Pradesh, the saffron party is preparing to win 300 seats in the upcoming assembly polls with the Ram Mandir sentiments in mind.
