Yashwant Sinha was a very responsible administrative officer, he was a good minister, he had a good understanding of politics, and he is well-versed in economic issues. They also have a good understanding of foreign policy.
But some people are in politics because they want something from politics all the time, Yashwant Sinha is one of those people who wanted to be defeated, that the party wanted to do something for them.
When Yashwant Sinha left the party from Chandrasekhar and came to the Bharatiya Janata Party, the party had made him the Leader of the Legislative Assembly in Bihar Assembly.
After that, when the BJP government was formed at the Center, he was also appointed as the Union Minister, the first Finance Minister, then the External Affairs Minister.
In this way, Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie were among the earliest people who were showing support for the Prime Minister’s post for Narendra Modi.
During the 2014 Lok Sabha election, he had said that till the term of this Lok Sabha is completed, I will be 81-82 years old, in such a situation, it will not be very possible for me to be politically active.
After this, the party gave the ticket to his son on their say and later made the son to minister. Now when these two things happened, he allegedly wanted the party to make him the Chief Minister of Jharkhand, but the party did not accept it, whatever the reasons are there.
After this he allegedly wanted the party to make him the chairman of the BRICS Bank, the party did not even allow this. Since then, they have continued to give anti-party statements continuously.
We can say that every good thing ends, you are a good and worthy person. This does not mean that you will stop the rest of the people.
Was Prime Minister Modi angry with him?
Yashwant Sinha has said that he had been seeking time from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a long time and wanted to meet him to discuss some topics. But it must also see what they had done before asking the Prime Minister for a time.
They were speaking on every forum against the party, writing. The people of the party were trying to prepare the party against the party. Among all these things, the Prime Minister knew why they wanted to meet him.
The Prime Minister also knew what Yashwant Sinha wanted to meet him and meet him.
In this way, if the Prime Minister met him, then Yashwant Sinha tried to take political advantage as well, that was the reason that the Prime Minister probably did not have the time to meet him.
In a way, in 2014 when Yashwant Sinha had adopted the anti-party stand, the party had separated him from that point of time just because he did not get him out of the party.
How much political future is left?
Yashwant Sinha’s political future is now just a year old. Until the election of 2019, he will cooperate with whatever forces he has anti-Modi. He will try that his revenge is complete so he will work against BJP.
If BJP returns to power in 2019, then along with Yashwant Sinha’s political career will also end. But if BJP loses, then perhaps they will be re-relevant and know what happens in any party.
But it can be said that their one year political life is definitely the rest.
Yes, I had supported Narendra Modi
Yashwant Sinha declares to leave BJP
BJP was not on ‘Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha’
What impact on BJP?
It does not seem that Yashwant Sinha’s exit from BJP will have any effect on BJP as he has been acting in the party for the last 3-4 years, in a way he was acting against the party.
Anyway, even if others leave the BJP, they could not even agree to their son that BJP is doing wrong, it threatens country or democracy. His son is not with them in his talks.
So Yashwant Sinha knows that there is no one with him within the party, but he was still waiting for the party to expel him so that he could leave the party in a martyr post.

Will Bihar’s politics be affected?
If you talk about Bihar’s politics, then Yashwant Sinha has no special significance, while in Jharkhand politics, he does not want to win any candidate outside Hazaribagh.
The second big thing is that when a leader is separated from a cadre party, that party’s cadre does not go with that leader. If you want, you can see examples of Kalyan Singh, Shankar Singh Vaghela. All these leaders saw huge public support, but as they got separated from the party, they began to look alienated.
Shatrughan Sinha was also present with Yashwant Sinha, he has also been constantly showing anti-party positions. They will also go with the Nation Forum when they take tickets in the coming elections.
But if these two leaders were seen then they were not called in any election campaign during Bihar’s last three-four elections. There is no major role for them in the organization, so these leaders will not be able to give any special challenge to Bihar’s politics or the JDU-BJP coalition.
