Senior BJP leader and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha today had a word of caution for Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, without naming him, and stated important public policies like budget should not be made sitting in an air conditioned North Block room. Addressing a felicitation function for him by the Skoch Summit here, Mr Sinha said leader engaged in public policies should be deep rooted to the ground. He said the office of the Finance Minister in North Block is more plush than that of the Prime Minister but something as important as budget should have a connect with the people. He also had a word of advice for his son Jayant Sinha who is the Minister of State for Finance stating that at least six finance ministers including himself had lost elections as they were forced to take decisions which proved unpopular with the public. A plain-speak Sinha showed his distaste for publicity in politics. He said the publicity has become the main thing, whether you are doing or may not be doing anything. Lets not run after publicity. It is a very dangerous weapon. Those who run after it they die with it. UNI ASH PC SW TK1900
