Former Union minister Yashwant Sinha  said people should not “forgive” Prime Minister Narendra Modi and “uproot” his government in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.He was addressing a farmers’ gathering at Vanthali in Gujarat’s Junagadh district. “This government has failed on all fronts. Everyone is suffering, be it farmers, youth, women or Dalits. Only new slogans are being given. The only solution is to uproot this government in the next (Lok Sabha) polls,” Sinha said.

“I want to apologise because I was also part of the BJP when promises were made ahead of 2014 elections. But I do not want you to forgive Modi in the next polls,” he said.The former finance minister has been a vocal critic of the current Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government and resigned from the party in April this year.Sinha was invited by Patidar leader Hardik Patel to address the farmers.Commenting on the unveiling of a 182-metre statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in Narmada district earlier on Wednesday, Sinha said Modi should have announced a pro-farmer scheme on the occasion.”He did not announce any scheme for farmers because he has forgotten them,” he said.

BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha was also present at the gathering.The actor-turned-politician said he will not complain if the BJP sacked him.
“I did not come into politics for any personal gain. I will not complain if my party sacks me tomorrow. I love the people of this country more than my party,” he said.
