New Delhi: Shatrughan Sinha has came out in support of Yashwant Sinha over his criticism of the state of economy, saying he was a true statesman and had shown the government the mirror.
Shatrughan also targeted his party leaders for dismissing the former finance minister’s views, saying it would be “childish” to do so as they were “entirely in the party’s and national interest“.
Taking a dig at the government in a series of tweets, he claimed motives were being ascribed to “Mr. Yashwant’s observations and “we all know that the infamous and pervasive dirty tricks department” was behind them.
“I’m of the firm opinion that everything that has been written by Mr Sinha is entirely in the party’s and national interest,” he tweeted.
“He is a true statesman and a tried and tested man of wisdom, who has proven himself as one of the best and most successful finance ministers of the country. He has shown the mirror on the economic condition of India and has hit the nail right on the head,” he said.
“Sadly, I’m yet to hear even one point by point rebuttal. Hope, wish and pray that all those people who matter in our party ponder over what has been said by Yashwant Sinha and remedial action is taken soon. Sooner the better. Long live BJP/NDA,” he posted on the micro-blogging website.
