Union Cabinet ‘biggest casualty’ in Modi Government: Sinha

KOLKATA: Former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Sunday accused the Narendra Modi Government of destroying various institutions in the country, including the Union Cabinet.

Speaking at a talk show, ‘Idea of Bengal’, organised by the ruling Trinamool Congress, Sinha accused the Prime Minister of trying to “undermine” the Rajya Sabha during the passage of key bills.

“The Modi Government has destroyed various institutions of the country. But the biggest casualty is the Union Cabinet,” the former Union Minister alleged.

“I am saying this because several important decisions are being taken without informing the Cabinet, be it the Rafale jet deal or demonetisation,” added Sinha, who held the finance and external affairs portfolios in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Government.

Parliament was the “second casualty” as the Modi Government has “tried to undermine” the Rajya Sabha, during the passage of several important bills, Sinha said.  (AGENCIES)
