In an apparent slip of tongue, senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Wednesday used an expletive word that raised eyebrows. "Media people come and put their mike, asking who would become the chief minister.
How does it matter which becomes CM, said Sinha. Sinha, whose word spoken in Hindi is taken as unparliamentary in Hindi-speaking states, was speaking at a seminar organised by the Jharkhand Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Ranchi.
He has been facing queries on chief ministerial candidate of BJP ever since he launched an agitation in protest in Hazaribagh and stayed in jail for a fortnight, triggering speculation over CM candidature of the party in the forthcoming elections. Even L K Advani had said Sinha would make a good chief minister.
