The politician, who spearheaded a massive farmers' protest at the Ramlila Maidan here recently, prophesied that the result of the 2019 polls will be similar to the election held after the Emergency in which the Indira Gandhi regime was uprooted.
“Earlier this month, we sent around 20,000 post cards to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis stating that we are coming for justified demands,” said Pratibha Shinde, general secretary of the Lok Sangharsh Morcha.
Yogendra Yadav lifted the dharna after seven hours only when senior administrative officers reached the venue and assured they would speed up the procurement apart from making it hassle-free for the farmers.
Yogendra Yadav was visiting Tiruvannamalai district to meet party representatives and some farmers’ families who were ostensibly affected by the land acquisition for the proposed Chennai-Salem greenfield corridor project.
I-T raids at Yogendra Yadav's family hospitals: "We strongly condemn victimisation of Yogendra Yadav’s family by Modi govt thro the use of agencies like IT. Modi govt shud stop such vendetta politics," Kejriwal said in a tweet.
Responding to these claims, Yogendra Yadav told The Indian Express: “Whatever was found during the raid is for the hospital authorities to explain. I raised my voice because they are being punished for my actions.”
"Two days after my 9-day padyatra in Rewari and launching of agitation for MSP (minimum support price) and against liquor thekas (shops), a massive IT raid is on at the hospital-cum-nursing home of my sisters in Rewari," Yogendra Yadav alleged in his tweet.
