Former Union Finance Minister and BJP veteran Yashwant Sinha on Saturday joined the Trinamool Congress weeks ahead of the West Bengal Assembly elections.
After joining the TMC, Sinha said, “You must be surprised why at this age when I’d distanced myself from party politics. Why am I joining a party and turning active? I’d like to say the country is going through an extraordinary situation.”
The 83-year-old former senior BJP leader had quit his party back in 2018.
