The appointment letter, dated August 27, 2018, states that he is national co-coordinator (sah-sanyojak) of the BJP Kisan Morcha’s Yuva Kisan Samiti.

BJP leaders deny any link with Shrikant Tyagi, booked by Noida police last Friday after he was caught on video pushing and abusing a woman at the Grand Omaxe residential society in Noida’s Sector 93-B, but a 2018 letter confirms Tyagi’s affiliation to the party.
