Opposition required to clear ED ‘exam’ when government fails: Akhilesh Yadav

“The meaning of ED is now ‘Examination in Democracy’. In politics, the opposition is required to clear this exam. When the government fails, it announces this exam. Those who have prepared well are neither afraid of written-reading exam nor verbal exam…And you should never be afraid,” Yadav tweeted in Hindi.
