Yedyurappa's return to BJP reflects how honest the party is: Yogendra Yadav
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav on Saturday said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi personally negotiating for the return of Former Chief Minister of Karnataka B.S Yeddyurappa in the party, reflected how honest he was and that the charade of the BJP being an honest party would be exposed very soon.
"This charade of the BJP being an honest party would be exposed very soon. Taking Yedyurappa back in the party does not come as a surprise, looking at the kind of ministers Modi has appointed in Gujarat," said Yadav.
"Yedyurappa was thrown out of the party on charges of corruption and there are clear reports that Narendra Modi has personally negotiated his return back to the party. This is Modi's honesty for you. It is in front of the whole country," he said.
