New Delhi:

Senior BJP leader and former finance minister Yashwant Sinha lambasted Jaitley over his job applicant remark, saying that the latter has delivered a well-researched speech but he overlooked Advani Ji's advice to refrain from personal attacks. 

While talking to ANI, he said, “He delivered a well-researched speech but overlooked Advani Ji's advice to refrain from personal attacks.”

He further added, "I did not come to politics after retirement. I left my post when I was serving as an IAS. So I could not be asking for the job at the age of 80 years.”

Hitting back at BJP leaders, he said, "They say I was useless as a minister. How could they have given me the ministry of External Affairs if I was so useless?"

Sinha said that Pakistan has ousted his PM after his name surfaced in Panama papers.“What did they do here? How much black money did Arun Jaitley bring back?” he questioned.

The former finance minister said during his tenure (as FM), there was never a discussion on inflation in Parliament because they had kept it well under control.
