Yashwant SInha

After criticising and protesting against the BJP's top leadership for months, Yashwant Sinha on Saturday finally announced his decision to leave the party to work towards "saving democracy in the country".

Announcing that he was quitting the BJP and launching a nationwide campaign to save democracy, he said, "Today I am ending all ties with the BJP..."

Sinha said that he will not have ties with any other political party. Present at the meet were leaders from Congress and Lalu Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha, who has also been sidelined by the party.

Playboy model free to discuss Trump 'affair'
She has went public with some of the details about the 2006 affair , claiming Trump tried to pay her for the night of pleasure. In 2016, A.M.I. bought the rights from McDougal to run the story about her affair with Trump but they never ran the story.

Sinha also said that India's religious minorities had become alienated, and the weakest sections of society, the scheduled castes and tribes had been "exposed to atrocities as never before" and the guarantees given to them in the constitution were threatened.

Sinha was the Minister of Finance under the BJP-led NDA government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee from 1998 to 2002.

"The Government did not care that the Budget session was being stalled as the PM did not call a single meeting with the Opposition to discuss their issues". "My heart beats for the country", he said.
