Yashwant Sinha’s Jibe: Arun Jaitely a burden on people of Gujarat

Yashwant Sinha

New Delhi, Nov 15: Launching a scathing attack over implementation of the Goods and Service Tax (GST) , Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Tuesday said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley  is a “burden” on the people of Gujarat. 

Sinha also said country can demand Jaitle’s resignation due to failures of  demonetisation and GST.

Addressing an event , the former finance minister stated Indian economy has received “two shocks” in the form of demonetisation and GST in quick succession.

Sinha was invited to poll-bound Gujarat by the activists associated with ‘Lokshahi Bachao Andolan’ (Save Democracy Movement) to express his views about the contemporary situation of the country’s  economy.

“Our finance minister is not from Gujarat, as he was elected to Rajya Sabha from here. And, he is a burden on the people of Gujarat. If he was not elected from here, a Gujarati would have got the chance”, Sinha was saying news agency PTI quoted.

The senior BJP leader said Jaitely believes in only one rule, “that is ‘chitt bhi meri patt bhi meri’, means heads I win, tails you lose.”

Taking a potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sinha said  even the 14th century sultan of Delhi, Muhammad bin Tughlaq, had implemented note ban 700 years back.

“There were many ‘shahensha’ (king) who brought their own currency. Some even kept old currency in circulation while rolling out the new one. But, there was a shahenshah 700 years back – Muhammad Bin Tughlaq – who introduced his own (currency) while discontinuing the old currency”.

“Thus, we can say that note ban was done 700 years back. Though Tughlaq is known  for shifting his capital from Delhi to Daulatabad, he has also done demonetisation,” Sinha added.

However, this is not the first time Sinha cornered  the ruling government over Demonetisation and GST.

Last week, he urged PM to sack Jaitely because of imposing  “deeply flawed” Goods and Service Tax in the system.
