Bharatiya Janata Party leader Yashwant Sinha criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, calling him an overrated economist and an underrated politician.
“The problem with Manmohan Singh has been that he has always acted as a consultant to the government, saying what should be done, what need not be done. You know he has been prime minister for eight years, before that he was finance minister for five years and clearly, he had all the opportunity in the world to implement what he believes in,” said Sinha who was finance minister during the NDA regime..
“Now, at the end of eight years, he cannot say this should be done and that should be done,” he added.
Sinha also said that the prime minister should not blame his government’s failures on the previous NDA government.
