BJP has been known to be a democratic party from the beginning; however Narendra Modi might want change things and make India a more one voice country instead of considering minorities.
This has resulted in Yashwant Sinha on Tuesday launching Rashtra Manch which brings together politicians across all parties to debate together against the Central government which is taking things backwards.
70 years ago, democracy was affected after Mahatma Gandhis assassination, which according to Sinha is the same situation with the Modi government. Sinha has likened the case of political control today as more of a dictatorship with power due to fear instead of democracy.
The politicians which will be part of the Rashtra Manch include Congress MP Dinesh Trivedi, Trinamool Congress MP Dinesh Trivedi, Congress MP Renuka Chowdhury, NCP MP Majeed Memon, AAP MP Sanjay Singh, former Gujarat Chief Minister Suresh Mehta and JD(U) leader Pavan Varma.
Doubts are formed though if BJP is playing the politics right with Shatrughan Sinha, BJP parlamentarian joining the Rashtra Manch debate to express his views. This he has stated is a strong point of BJP wanting to bring in a broader point of viewpoint in terms of policies and controlling the country.
What is interesting is, Shatrughan Sinha stated that the BJP had not let him express his viewpoint. Being the outspoken personality he is, such strong voices need to be heard of since development is all about unity. He however added that this does not mean he is anti BJP but it was in the interest of the country as a whole.
Shatrughan Sinha said he had joined the platform because he had not been given a forum in his party to express his views, but added that his decision to back the front should not be seen as an anti-party activity as it was in national interest.
