New Delhi, Oct 6: Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha has said he is waiting for a day when his son and Union Minister Jayant Sinha will realise that to support a father is his dharma.
Addressing at a book launch event on Thursday night, Sinha said there was an attempt to create father-son complications following his article slamming the Modi government over contemporary economic scenario of the country.
His son Jayant Sinha, who is Minister of State for Civil Aviation, had penned an article a day later regarding “fundamental structural reforms” that were “transforming the economy.”
Responding to a query , Yashwant Sinha said that overemphasis was being made on the fact that his son is in the council of ministers.
“There have been several instances in history, even today, of father and son not agreeing. As I said on the first day, he is doing his dharma, I am doing mine.
“Someday he realises his dharma is to support me, I will wait for that day. If he does not realise, good luck to him,” Yashwant Sinha asserted after releasing the latest book of Congress leader Manish Tewari “Tidings of Troubled Times”.
Yashwant Sinha also indicated that he will continue to articulate his views on various ongoing issues related to India “I am assured of one thing, there is no Agra Fort in which I can be locked up, He added.
