Senior leader Yashwant Sinha, a verbal supporter of transparency in the BJP, has kept quiet so far in these two weeks marking uproar, upheaval, and uprooting in the saffron party. Be it Jaswant Singh’s Jinnah controversy or Arun Shourie’s comments about the party and party leadership – Kati Patang, Humpty-dumpy, Alice in Blunderland.
“Sorry. I don’t have any comments to make,” Sinha was quoted as saying by IANS in response to the expulsion of former defence, finance and external affairs minister Jaswant Singh last week for his book “Jinnah: India – Partition – Independence”.
In addition, Sinha chose to be silence on another senior leader Arun Shourie’s criticism of the party and recommending the RSS to take control of it for a top to bottom cleaning.
A former finance minister, Sinha is one of the those leaders who had earlier pointed out that accountability needed to be fixed for the party’s debacle in the April-May ballot.
The BJP is contemplating whether or not to initiate disciplinary action against Shourie,
