Chandigarh: A day after senior BJP leader
Jaswant Singh questioned the rationale behind refusing bail to
A Raja and Kanimozhi, who are accused in the 2G spectrum scam,
Yashwant Sinha today supported the views of his party
Endorsing the opinion of Singh, he said, "Those who are in
jail have a right to seek bail."
The senior BJP leader was speaking with media here after
flagging off `Janjagran Abhiyan` of the party.
He said that a criminal has the right to move court to
get bail, adding that the issue of granting an alleged
criminal a bail or not falls under the purview of the courts.
Like Singh, Sinha too categorically said that his views
were personal and not that of the party.
Singh, in an interview to a private channel, had yesterday
reportedly wondered how both Raja and Kanimozhi could
interfere in the CBI investigations when the trial in the case
is already on.
After Jaswant Singh, Sinha became the second BJP leader to
speak out on issue of bail to Raja and Kanimozhi.
Sinha appreciated the move of civil society members,
including Anna Hazare, to involve political parties in framing
of Lokpal Bill.
He said that his personal opinion is that the Prime
Minister should also be under the ambit of Lokpal.
