In a sudden development, former Union finance minister Yashwant Sinha quit Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday.

Mr Sinha, who has been attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government since long made an announcement to that effect during a conference of National Forum or Rashtra Manch at SK Memorial here in presence of another sulking BJP leader and MP from Patna Sahib Shatrughan Sinha. Leaders from the Congress and other opposition parties had joined the event. He said he quit BJP blaming the "present conditions in party". "Let the party throw me out if it wants", Sinha said. I'll set off a strong movement with all my friends and like-minded people in the country to save democracy.

Yashwant Sinha had held the Finance and External Affairs portfolios in Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's cabinet between 1998 and 2004.

Sinha slammed the Narendra Modi-led government and alleged that democracy is under threat.

"Why should I quit the BJP?"

He was in Patna for a meeting of his front or platform "Rashtra Manch".

Several Opposition members such as Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tej Pratap Yadav, Congress' Renuka Chowdhury, Aam Aadmi Party leaders Ashutosh and Sanjay Singh attended the event. "I am not an aspirant for any top post and I am making it clear here that I am not at all interested to seek any post", he added. It may be noted that the minister in an earlier interview has expressed his dissatisfaction with the economic policies of the government.

Sinha, who had joined the BJP in the mid-90s, said "Aaj se mera BJP ke saath rishta samapt ho gaya".
