Sacked BSF Jawan Who Threatened To Kill PM Modi To Contest Against M L Khattar In Haryana Polls Constable Tej Bahadur Yadav. (YouTube)

Sacked BSF trooper Tej Bahadur Yadav, who had sought to take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2019 general elections, on Monday (30 September) said he will contest against Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in the 21 October Assembly polls.

Yadav, who had on Sunday joined regional political outfit Indian National Lok Dal's breakaway faction, the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) led by Dushyant Chautala, said that he would contest against Khattar from the Karnal Assembly constituency.

He termed unemployment a major issue in the state.

Dismissed from service after uploading on social media a video showing allegedly poor quality food served to them, Yadav had sought to contest against Modi in the Varanasi parliamentary constituency as a Samajwadi Party candidate. However, the Election Commission had rejected his nomination papers.

During that time a video had surfaced of him saying that if anyone pays him Rs 50 crore, he would kill Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi within 72 hours of being handed over the sum.
