Calling upon all opposition parties to come together to stitch a non-BJP alliance to defeat the NDA in the next Lok Sabha polls, rebel JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav on Friday formally launched the Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) in New Delhi. In a scathing attack on the PM Narendra Modi-led Centre, Yadav said constitutional values faced a “danger” under the Modi government. “If they (the BJP) come to power again, you will not be allowed to hold meetings and make speeches,” he said.
