If I wanted Finance Ministry, Jaitley would not have been there: Yashwant Sinha
Former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha on Friday again attacked Arun Jaitley, saying that if he was a “job applicant” at 80, then Jaitley would not be holding charge of the Finance Ministry now.
Sinha also told the media that those who had never won a Lok Sabha election were questioning and attacking him and misleading the people of the country over the issue of black money.
“If I would have been a job applicant, then he would not have been (there),” Sinha said in response to Jaitely, who on Thursday described Sinha as a job applicant at age 80.
Speaking at a book launch here, Jaitley also accused Sinha of “acting in tandem” with Congress leader P. Chidambaram.
Asked about his relations with Chidamabaram, Sinha said: “He is not my friend. But he is a friend of Jaitley.”
