New Delhi: The statement of Rashtriya Lok Dal chief Jayant Chaudhary has come after the Central Government gave Bharat Ratna to Chaudhary Charan Singh. Jayant said that by giving Bharat Ratna to Chaudhary Charan Singh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has listened to the voice of the country. He said that Charan Singh had sacrificed his entire life for the farmers and the country and by honoring him the government has honored the farmers.
Jayant Chaudhary said that this decision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has won hearts. He has fulfilled the dream of my father late Ajit Singh. Jayant Singh said that only Prime Minister Narendra Modi understands the voice of the country. He said that the Central Government is working for the farmers and laborers of the country. On calling this decision of the Center an election decision, Jayant said that it cannot be called an election decision. This should be seen rising above party politics.
This decision is not electoral or political – Jayant
He said that he criticizes those who are linking this decision with politics and elections. During this time, on the question of joining NDA, he said that now with what face should I refuse? After this statement of Jayant, it has become clear to some extent that his party RLD is joining NDA.
Till now RLD had alliance with SP
RLD was till now a part of the India alliance with Samajwadi Party and a few days ago, SP chief Samajwadi Party had also announced this alliance afresh. During this time it was said that RLD would contest elections on seven Lok Sabha seats. But perhaps Jayant Choudhary did not like this compromise and he started talking about joining NDA through a minister in Modi government.
