Sacked BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav lambasted PM Modi after his nomination was rejected in Varanasi.

Yadav who was fielded as Mahagathbandhan candidate from Varanasi, called Modi fake Chowkidar and said, “I am being blocked from fighting elections as the nakli chowkidar (fake watchman) of the country is afraid of the asli (real) chowkidar.”

Earlier in the day, Tej Bahadur Yadav alleged that the BJP was creating “roadblocks” in his nomination process to “prevent” him from contesting elections against Modi as they fear Modi will lose the election.

“I had filed my first nomination as an independent candidate on April 24 and on SP party symbol on April 29. If there were any issues with the nominations, why wasn’t I informed earlier?” questioned Yadav.

Yadav’s counsel said that they will approach the Supreme Court over the rejection of his client’s nomination.

Yadav was asked by the authorities to submit NOC (No-Objection Certificate) from the BSF as to on what grounds he was dismissed from the service.

Reacting to the rejection of Tej Bahadur’s nomination, Uttar Pradesh Samajwadi Party spokesperson Manoj Rai Dhoopchandi alleged that Yadav was being “targeted” as he represented the aspirations and angst of farmers and Jawans.

Analysts believe that the rejection of Tej Bahadur Yadav’s nomination will further consolidate Yadavs in favour of Mahagathbandhan, as it is being perceived as an act of humiliation, unleashed to hurt their caste pride.

Yadavs who form nearly 10% of the total population of the state, will decisively vote against the BJP, said an analyst. It is being viewed that the rejection of Tej Bahadur’s nomination will have a repercussion among younger Yadav voters who were drawn towards Modi and the BJP.
