A post is being shared online where it is being claimed that former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi made two of her MPs resign and gave those seats to LK Advani and Atal Bihari Vajpayee when BJP did not win a single seat in the Lok Sabha elections.
“जब बीजेपी को लोकसभा में ‘0’ सीट आई थी तब इंदिरा जी ने अपने 2 MP से त्यागपत्र लेकर 1 सीट पर अटल जी तथा 1 सीट पर आडवाणी जी को दी थी.” the text reads in Hindi.
