Yogendra Yadav accuses PM Modi of ‘targeting his family’

In a series of tweets, Yadav said that over 100 officials from Delhi raided a hospital-cum-nursing home run by his sisters in Rewari on Wednesday.

New Delhi: Swaraj Abhiyan President and founder of Jai Kisan Andolan Yogendra Yadav on Wednesday alleged that Modi government is ‘targeting his family’ to intimidate him.

In a series of tweets, Yadav said that over 100 officials from Delhi raided a hospital-cum-nursing home run by his sisters in Rewari on Wednesday.

“Modi regime now targets my family. Two days after my 9 day padyatra in Rewari and launching of agitation for MSP and against liquor thekas, a massive IT raid is on at the hospital cum nursing home of my sisters in Rewari,” he said in a tweet.

Swaraj also said Modi must search him and his home, if needed, why target his family?

“About 100+ force from Delhi raided hospitals at 11 am today. All doctors (my sisters, brother in law, nephew) detained in their chambers. Hospital sealed, including ICU for newly born babies. A clear attempt to intimidate. Modiji you can’t silence me,” Yadav said in another tweet.

Congress MP Deepender S Hooda condemned the act of ‘vendetta politics’ by BJP government and said, “@_YogendraYadav has always been in different political party to mine but no doubt I have always heard good things about his family in Rewari: this is uncalled for,” he said.

Swaraj Abhiyan spokesperson Anupam said, “When their false propaganda of MSP Hike didn’t work, the Modi government targets the family of Yogendra Yadav a day after the 9-day Swaraj Yatra in Haryana. Over 100 officials from Delhi and Gurgaon have been sent to intimidate his sister’s family who run a hospital in Rewari.”

Two days ago, Yadav had led a padyatra, which by his own admission, crossed through 127 villages of Rewari in nine days. He claimed to have walked 250 kilometres during the event.

Yogendra Yadav also announced a movement to make sure that every farmer is given full MSP for millets and cotton. He also demanded that liquor shops in every village be closed.
