Jabalpur, Jan 31 : Senior BJP leader and former Union Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha on Wednesday said the an atmosphere of fear prevails in the country due to misuse of probe agencies.
Without naming the central government, Sinha, who has since formed a Rashtra Manch, told the media the official agencies are being used against people having a different mindset.
He said that being a citizen of India is more important than being a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party and that he was fighting for the rights of the farmers as a citizen of this country.
"People sitting in Delhi and Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh capital) are oblivious to the plight of the farmers and the ground realities," the former Union Minister said.
As for the Rashtra Macnch, he said it was an apolitical organisation and a movement.
