The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday slammed senior party leader Yashwant Sinha over his participation in the launch ceremony of a book by Congress leader Manish Tewari, saying that Sinha is in search of a 'new job' that is why he is attending the grand old party's event.
While speaking to ANI, BJP leader G. V. L. Narasimha Rao said "Yashwant Sinha is today in the company of the Congress party, which has given the most corrupt government ever. I'm shocked to see that Sinha is seeing great virtues in the Congress party because he is search of a 'new job'. We can also see that Sinha is running after Rahul Gandhi someone who is himself unemployed politically as of today".
Echoing similar views, another governing party leader Anil Baluni stated that it was clear now from where Sinha was acquiring his 'new-found' knowledge on economy.
"We are shocked and sad to see our senior leader attending Congress' party's event. He meeting the Congress proves that they are brainwashing him in all aspect. It's really unfortunate to see one of our leaders to part ways from us. Also it has been made clear now from where Sinha is acquiring his 'new-found' knowledge on economy," he said.
Yesterday, Sinha, while addressing the gathering at the release of a book authored by Congress leader Manish Tewari, reportedly made an oblique comment on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked why he recently gave a long speech on the economy of the nation.
Sinha had earlier castigated Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of making a mess of the Indian economy.
