Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi got former Border Security Force (BSF) jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav’s nomination cancelled as he was afraid to contest against him from Varanasi.
“There will be fewer occasions in history when the jawans of a country are compelled to challenge their PM, but this is the first time in history that a PM has been so afraid of a jawan that instead of competing with him, he got his nomination cancelled on technical grounds. Modi ji, you are very weak and the country’s jawan won, Arvind Kejriwal tweeted.
Tej Bahadur Yadav’s nomination as the Samajwadi Party (SP) candidate from the seat was rejected on Wednesday over ‘discrepancies’ in the two sets of nomination papers submitted by him.
Tej Bahadur Yadav was dismissed from the Border Security Force after he uploaded a video in which he alleged that poor quality food was being served to jawans.
