Yogendra Yadav’s Swaraj India not to join the grand alliance without “due consideration”

Swaraj India favours replacing the present ruling party at the centre but they will not support the opposition parties without due consideration

Expelled Aam Admi Party leader and President of Swaraj India Party, Yogendra Yadav, on Sunday said that his party will not be a part of the proposed grand alliance (Mahagathbandhan) of opposition parties for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

“We are not going to be a part of any Mahagathbandhan for the 2019 elections. Power is not the aim of our politics. We want to teach a lesson to those who have been spoiled by power,” Yadav announced at a press briefing held during the launch of his party’s campaign “Rashtra Nirman Ke Liye Lok Abhiyan”.

Yadav who does not want to support the opposition parties without deliberation said that Swaraj India favours replacing the present ruling party at the centre but they will not support the opposition parties without due consideration.

Yadav’s Swaraj Abhiyan was part of the All India Kisan Sangharsh Committee (AIKSCC), a front of the Left parties, which organised the recent farmers’ rally at Ramlila Maidan. According to Yadav, farmers’ issues will play a key role in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Comparing the 2019 Lok Sabha polls with the elections held after the Emergency, Yadav hinted that the BJP will be uprooted the way Indira Gandhi government was uprooted post Emergency. “Our aim is to defeat the anti-farmer party and keep others in check who claim to be champions of farmers’ cause,” he added.

Yadav’s inclination towards the Left and his aversion of the Right and therefore the BJP and the RSS is well known. He had earlier spread misinformation about the RSS in his editorial piece published in the Hindu wherein he said that RSS was not a part of the freedom movement.
