  • On the same day, because of the pressure built by the public, the BJP leaders had to take action against him, so the Haryana BJP president OP Dhankar announced his decision to expel him from the party. In an interview, Yadav said that he was not sure if he was suspended due to his controversial tweets or party routine exercise. He said,

    The party has not mentioned any reasons for relieving me from the assignment. So, I am not really sure if it was due to any tweets. But, this (party move) is a routine exercise. The party can change responsibilities at any time. I am a dedicated worker of the BJP.”

Over the years, my team and I have coordinated digital campaigns during UP, Punjab, and other elections.”
