Etawah (UP): Samajwadi Party’s (SP) chief national general secretary Prof Ram Gopal Yadav on Thursday expressed apprehension that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) may use the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to put opposition leaders in the dock ahead of the 2024 parliamentary elections.

Talking to UNI, Ram Gopal said before the 2024 parliamentary elections, every big leader of the opposition can be put in jail on the pretext of investigation by the ED. “Before the Lok Sabha elections every leader of the opposition will be brought under the ambit of investigation by the ED and the Income Tax Department and action will be taken against him,” he said.

He said those in power think that by putting people in jail, terrorizing them, they can be brought under pressure. “Actually, BJP leaders have neither learnt nor they want to learn from history. When former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi jailed all the leaders of the opposition, her party was defeated in all subsequent by-elections and general elections,” he said.

The SP leader said everyone knows the history of the person under whose leadership such action is being taken in Uttar Pradesh.
