A shocking video of the sacked BSF officer Tej Bahadur Yadav, in which he is seen agreeing to kill PM Modi for Rs 50 crores, is doing the rounds on the Social Media platforms. In the video, the SP candidate from Varanasi, whose candidature was recently cancelled by the Election Commission, was seen in an inebriated state claiming to assassinate PM Modi for a sum of Rs 50 crores.

Tej Bahadur Yadav can be seen in the video, chatting with other men, allegedly his friends, over drinks and food. While the men appeared in the intoxicated state, in conversation with one of them, Tej Bahadur Yadav said, “50 crores do, main Modi ko marwa dunga.” (Give me 50 crores, I will get Modi murdered). The other man shots back that nobody in the country will be able to give him such a huge amount, Pakistan might be willing to give him. To this Tej Bahadur Yadav replies, “Desh se gaddari nahin, agar yahan ka koi dega, toh mai Modi ko marwa dunga.” (I won’t betray the country, if someone here pays me that amount, then I will get Modi murdered).
In another video of the same day that has gone viral, Tej Bahadur Yadav can be seen drinking and smoking with other men. One of the persons in the video introduces the other person in the video as Tej Bahadur Yadav, “the former BSF commando in Indian army”. Yadav has himself admitted that he is present in the video and it is 2 years old.
Tej Bahadur Yadav was fielded as an SP-BSP candidate from the Varanasi constituency against PM Modi. However, the Election Commission cancelled his nomination citing discrepancies in the two sets of nomination papers he had submitted. He also needs to submit a no-objection certificate from BSF, giving reasons for his dismissal. He was sacked in 2017 from the BSF citing a violation of the BSF disciplinary norms. He has, however, moved the apex court to challenge the EC’s decision to cancel his candidature.
