Yashwant Sinha defends Kushwaha entry in BJP

Hazaribagh: Defending the induction of Babu Singh Kushwaha in the party, BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Friday called him a "whistleblower" who had exposed the irregularities in the Mayawati government.

"Kushwahaji has come to the party as a whistleblower," he told reporters, apparently expecting more disclosures by Kushwaha against the BSP government in Uttar Pradesh.

Sinha said this when his reaction was sought on the induction of Kushwaha in BJP after he was dropped by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati from her cabinet recently.
