People lost faith in BJP: Yashwant Sinha

Yashwant Sinha, former Finance and External Affairs Minister in the Vajpayee government, says Jharkhand elections have proved that people are tired of the rhetoric of BJP and its policy of Hindu-Muslim divide. 

He said, 'BJP only raised divisive issues like Art 370, Ram Temple and Triple Talaq and in the later part the issues of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC). They even claimed they will win 65 of the 81 seats on the back of the performance of “double engine” the Centre and State government. 

The message is loud and clear now and it shows that the people of Jharkhand have not been impressed by these divisive issues. Another reason for BJP’s debacle is ‘the economy, which is stupid.  Look at what happened in Haryana and Maharashtra, where their claims fell flat’.
