Amid political season peaking, the former finance minister Yashwant Sinha has a totally new candidate in mind for the job of Prime Minister of India.
He named himself as closest to someone who will have to find somebody who is prepared to buy this theory of creation of crores of jobs.
The two-time finance minister was asked to suggest his dream roadmap for creating jobs, at a session organised as part of Shri Ram College’s Economic Summit at the Delhi University.
At the time he mentioned that, he was on stage with Left leader Sitaram Yechury.
The session took place a day before Mr Sinha attended the opposition’s show of strength in Kolkata organised by Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Sinha was also asked about the possibility of Nitin Gadkari being that candidate, given that there had been some buzz around the union road transport minister recently.
