Sultanpur, Dec 23: Former Union Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha on Sunday said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was ‘trying’ to eliminate democracy in the country.
Addressing a gathering here at a programme organised in memory of freedom fighter Khudiram Bose, Mr Sinha alleged, “at first BJP strategically eliminated democracy in the party and now they want to eliminate democracy from society and country”.
