Yashwant Sinha said that the values that we used to give a lot of importance till now, thinking that we will implement this in democracy, are not being followed today.
Former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Saturday. Sinha, who was finance minister and foreign minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, left the BJP in 2018. Sinha has made a claim related to the Kandahar plane hijackings case after joining TMC in Kolkata on Saturday. Sinha said that during that time Mamta Banerjee had proposed to the Atal government to take hostages instead of the hostages themselves. Mamta was then the railway minister in the NDA government.
What did Sinha say to the media…
Today I want to tell you that when the Indian Airlines airplane … was abducted … it was hijacked and the terrorists who were carrying it were taken to Kandahar (Afghanistan). One day it was being discussed in the cabinet, then Mamta ji offered that she would go there as hostage herself … and the condition should be that the remaining hostages should be left terrorists and she (Mamta) in his possession Will go The sacrifice that has to be sacrificed, it will be sacrificed for the nation …
India left 3 terrorists in Kandahar scandal
On 24 December 1999, Indian Airlines aircraft IC-814 was hijacked by terrorists of Pakistani terrorist organization Harkat ul Mujahideen at around 5.30 pm. The aircraft was scheduled to fly from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, to Delhi. While landing in Amritsar, Lahore and Dubai, the terrorists forced the aircraft to land in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The terrorists left 27 of the 176 passengers in Dubai, but a passenger named Rupin Katyal was severely beaten to death with a knife. Then in exchange for the release of passengers, India had to fight 3 terrorists Masood Azhar, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and Mustaq Ahmad Jarger.
Yashwant Sinha said – The country is going through a crisis, so returned to politics
Prior to the West Bengal assembly elections, former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha joined Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress. He left the BJP about three years ago and disassociated himself from party politics. Now he says that the country is going through a wonderful crisis, so he has decided to enter politics again. He reached TMC Bhawan in Kolkata and took the membership of the party by holding the Trinamool flag.
On this occasion, Sinha said, ‘You must be getting amused about today’s incident. You must be thinking that when I have separated myself from party politics, why am I getting active by joining the party. Actually, the country is going through a wonderful situation at this time. Till now, the values we used to give a lot of importance to, thinking that we would implement them in democracy, today they are not being followed.
He said, ‘The power of democracy is the institutions of democracy. Today almost every institution has become weak, including the judiciary of the country. This has become the biggest threat to our country.
BJP’s allies leaving him: Sinha
He said, ‘Allies of BJP are leaving him. The oldest ally Akali Dal has also separated from him. Shiv Sena has also distanced from him. No important party is with him except JDU. They are not capable of it. There is a serious war going on in the country. It is not just a battle of elections, it is a fight for the country’s identity. ‘
The country will not tolerate Modi-Shah: Sinha
He said, ‘There is no doubt that the Trinamool Congress will come back to power with a very large majority. There should be a message from Bengal to the whole country that whatever Modi and Shah are running from Delhi, now the country will not tolerate it.
He said, ‘I am saying with great regret that the Election Commission is no longer an independent institution. The decision to distort the elections (voting in 8 phases) has been taken under the control of Modi-Shah and it has been taken to benefit the BJP.
BJP’s motive is only to win elections: Sinha
He said, ‘Trinamool Congress is a big contest between BJP in Bengal. BJP today has only one objective in the country, to win every election by yen-ken-type. Therefore, an attack was made in Nandigram to cripple Mamta ji. ‘
Launched Rashtra Manch in 2018
Yashwant Sinha started a Rashtra Manch 3 years ago on 30 January. This included those who considered the current situation in the country to be bad and were not happy with it. Shatrughan Sinha, Tejashwi Yadav, Renuka Chaudhary and leaders of many parties attended the program. After this, he opted out of BJP and party politics on 21 April 2018.
Sinha, also an IAS officer, later entered politics
Sinha was elected to the IAS in 1960 and was ranked 12th all over India. After working in Aara and Patna, he was posted as Deputy Commissioner in Santhal Parganas. He came into politics in 1984 after playing the role of IAS for 24 years. In 1990, he became finance minister in Chandrashekhar’s government.
In 1998, he also became the Finance Minister in the central government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The government collapsed after 13 months. In 1999, Vajpayee returned and Sinha again got the finance ministry.
