Yashwant Sinha (born November 6, 1937, Patna) is an Indian politician and a former Finance Minister of India (1990–1991 under Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar and March 1998 – July 2002 under Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee) and foreign minister (July 2002 – May 2004) in Atal Bihari Vajpayee's cabinet.

The Banking Regulation (Amendment) Bill of 2005 lapsed since the 14th Lok Sabha was dissolved in 2009. The government introduced the Bill again in 2011 in the 15th Lok Sabha. The Standing Committee on Finance chaired by the BJP MP Yashwant Sinha recommended that the voting cap can be raised from 10 per cent to 26 per cent instead of just removing the cap altogether. The government accepted this recommendation. With the passage of the Bill, foreign banks and foreign financial institutions can acquire control with 26 per cent voting right and by adopting various devises. The other aspect of the Bill adopted is that it enables new banks to be set-up in the private sector. The Reserve Bank of India has been empowered to license and regulate such banks. There will be no bar on corporate houses opening banks. Prior to nationalization in 1969, most of the private banks were linked to industrial houses – United Commercial Bank to Birla firms, the Oriental Bank of Commerce to Thapar companies, the Central ...
BJP president poll: Gadkari may be challenged by Yashwant 22-Jan 18:04 PM New Delhi: The race for the next Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president could turn into a bitter battle with senior party leader and Hazaribagh MP Yashwant Sinha likely to contest against Nitin Gadkari. Yashwant Sinha's aide has taken the nomination papers from BJP office on Tuesday for the election which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday. If Yashwant Sinha decides to contest, it will be a huge loss of face for Gadkari as his camp is not only confident of a win, but also hopes that he will be elected unopposed. Senior BJP leaders LK Advani and party spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad have refused to comment on the presidential election. Gadkari is backed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which has been dictating how the BJP should be run since the party's inception. If Gadkari is challenged then it would be huge setback for the RSS. The RSS's hold over the BJP would weaken which Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat would never wan ...
BJP president election: Yashwant Sinha to take on Nitin Gadkari? - Zee News
"No sense remark of Home Minister" The watchless leaders of the country’s largest opposition party “BJP” having veteran leaders like Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Murli Manohar Joshi, Yashwant Sinha, Arun Jaitley and many more. They owe the respect and love in the hearts of the Indians. The party gave in the proud glory of Kargil war, Vajpayee’s contribution of “Aman Ki Asha” between India and Pakistan which is still alive in our hearts. The uncultured Shinde cannot be the home minister of a cultured country like India.

Walmart strom hits parliament The Wal-Mart lobbying issue rocked Parliament for the second day today, prompting government to declare that it had no hesitation in ordering a probe into reports that the retail giant had spent money to further its case in India. "We have no hesitation in having an inquiry to get to the facts of the matter. We will announce further steps in the House today," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said in the Lok Sabha seeking to douse the Opposition ire on the issue. The government "views the reports (on Wal-Mart) with the utmost concern," he added. His statement came close on the heels of senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha demanding a time-bound judicial inquiry into the reports that Wal-Mart engaged lobbying firms to get entry into India and "spent money here". The inquiry should be completed within 60 days and people should know who has been bribed and how much has he got, Sinha said amid cries of 'shame, shame' from the Opposition benches. Noting that there have been "g ...

A political party is run on consensus among its leaders, now when Shatrughan Sinha, Yashwant Sinha, Ram Jethmalani and others are openly against Gadkari continuing as BJP chief what makes BJP scions like Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Ravi Shankar Prasad support Gadkari as the chief ? This policy has made the supporters lose confidence in the Party's Top Brass and it may act as a nail in party's coffin in 2014-LS elections. Has BJP lost direction and political wisdom it was rich in, under the aegis of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Will it ever come to power again?
Patna: BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha today said he was 'ideologically' with Ram Jethmalani and Yashwant Sinha who have sought the resignation of party president Nitin Gadkari over allegations of corruption. "The issue raised by them (Jethmalani and Yashwant Sinha) should be looked at seriously," Mr Sinha, a member of the Lok Sabha from Patna Sahib, told reporters. Mr Jethmalani, while demanding Mr Gadkari's resignation, had claimed some other BJP leaders were with him on the demand for the latter's exit as party chief. On Mr Gadkari, the actor-turned-BJP leader said "he is a friend but a person occupying a responsible post should not only be honest but should also be seen as honest." The campaign for the resignation of the beleaguered BJP president had recently got fresh ammunition with Yashwant Sinha demanding that he step down immediately. Earlier, Mr Jethmalani and his son Mahesh had made the demand in the wake of reports of alleged dubious financing of Purti Sugar and Power Group, which was promoted by ...

At a press conference on Monday, Finance Minister P Chidambaram said when the final version of the Bill was tabled in Parliament, the government would abide by the recommendations of the parliamentary standing committee on DTC. The parliamentary panel, chaired by former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha, had recommended the DTC increase income tax exemption limit to Rs 300,000 a year, against the Rs 200,000 proposed in the Bill

India Business: FDI in retail full of holes: BJP: Former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha lashed out at Prime Min...
10 years ago, NDA had pitched for 100% FDI in retail sector For all its current vociferous opposition to 51 per cent foreign direct investment in multi-brand retail, it was the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) that had first proposed the full opening up of the retail trade sector nearly a decade ago in May 2002. Both Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress and M Karunanidhi’s DMK, which are now the strongest opponents of the move within the UPA, were part of the NDA then. In a note for a group of ministers on FDI chaired by the then Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha, the ministry of commerce and industry under DMK’s Murasoli Maran recommended permitting 100 per cent FDI in retail trade, subject to a minimum capitalisation of $10 million. When contacted on Tuesday, Sinha said he did not remember the issue being discussed. “Anyway, a lot has changed between 2002 and now. Its like BC and AD. Moreover, like individuals, parties also grow looking at national and international developments,” he t ...

Not necessary to project anyone as BJP's PM candidate: Yashwant Sinha
On a political note: Bal Thackarey is pitching for Sushma Swaraj. He feels she is a better bet than Narendra Modi for the PM's post. But I don't buy his argument. Sushma Swaraj is a melodramatic leader and she also failed to lead her party in the Delhi assembly polls. She cited infighting as the reason behind her debacle. But at this juncture from BJP the only fittest candidate for the top job is YASHWANT SINHA. He was a good Finance Minister and most importantly he was an IAS officer as well.

Rejection of Swamy' and Prashant Bhushan's plea against Chidambram is great news of today.It is the victory of Chidambram's innocent smile over Swamy's mischievous one. I am neither face reader nor undeerstood much about human psyche but smile of both these people have created this impression in my mind.The way Chidambram conducted himself all this period and never replied or commented even after use of most filthy foul and abusive language by BJP leaders including Ravi Shankar Prasad Yashwant Sinha etc is highly commendable .He only defended himself once and that too in parliament .He is real statemen andasset for the nation.Now he should file libel suit against not only Swamy and Prashant Bhushan but also against Yashwant Sinha who once suggested to put Chidmabram in the same cell of Tihar jail where Raja was kept.

Hindustan Times makes Yashwant Sinha surrender in "anti-graft" case
the Moody's Analytics report gave a fresh handle to the opposition to slam the government on its reforms record. "For all practical purposes, the PM is already a lame duck. He doesn't lead either in Parliament or outside," BJP leader and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha said. "I must confess that I find these comments on India's PM very humiliating. But it cannot be denied that while the government may try and hide the truth from our own people, keen observers abroad are not deceived." Levine said Finance Minister P Chidambaram was making all the right noises, with pledges to curb the government deficit and lift business confidence and investment but bold measures were needed to revive and restore the health of the economy. "While we applaud the intent of the new Finance Minister, it all has the feel of being a quick fix, last-ditch effort to avert the economy from its downward spiral. But an economy is a complex combination of millions of different units-households, firms, government entities and s ...

Telgi scam = Solution: (1)Telgi had over 20 associates who were later imprisoned for over 5 years each. We should conduct narco-test on each in public, and also take them on third degree in public to extract names and material evidences. (2)At various levels, Ministers\IAS were involved in assisting Telgi. The material evidences obtained from Telgi and associates would prove their involvement. We should conduct narco on these Ministers\IAS in public as well. (3)All stamp paper above Rs 20 should be abolished and stamp duty amount should be paid by cheque to Govt. (4)Telgi scam create a FALSE rumor that narco-test can be subverted by training. Actually, Ministers like P Chidambaram, Yashwant Sinha, Pawar, S M Krishna were all neck deep in scam. So they all bribed CBI director and Forensice Lab Director to give near-zero dose of Sodium Penthanol to Telgi. So in reality, no narco test was done on Telgi - it was just a drama. Saying that person can subvert narco-test is like saying that person can survive po ...

Reacting to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's assurances on the economy, Sinha said the claims were laughable. He said Manmohan Singh was an overrated economist and underrated politician. "Manmohan Singh has always acted as a consultant to the government, being a Prime Minister for eight years and a Finance Minister for some years. Who brought this situation? It's absolutely wrong to say it is a global mess, it's a domestic mess created by the government," Sinha said. Reacting to the Prime Minister's comments on corruption, Sinha said, "These are the most laughable of all comments made so far. He has defended his corrupt ministers to the hilt, it's only when the Supreme Court used its stick that they gave up. Why is he protecting Chidambaram? He protected Raja earlier." Yashwant Sinha also said that there was no point holding talks with Pakistan. This ...

BJP-REHMAN India should verify and trust and not trust and verify: BJP New Delhi, Jun 27 (PTI) BJP today said it was not surprised by the comments of Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik on alleged 26/11 handler Abu Jundal, saying Islamabad is "habitually in denial mode" and India should follow a policy of first veryfying its claims and then trusting them. "It is difficult to say whether Pakistan should trust India or India should trust Pakistan. Our Prime Minister had famously said sometime ago that his policy towards Pakistan is trust and verify. Instead of saying verify and trust, he said trust and verify," BJP leader Yashwant Sinha told reporters. He said even in the case of death row convict Sarabjit Singh, who is jailed in Pakistan and the government here is trying to bring him back, it is futile if UPA government trusted the neighbouring country. On Jundal, Sinha said "Pakistan we know is habitually in a mode of denial. They will never accept (that he was involved in 26/11). Earlier about Amir K ...

Treasury’s ‘ zero’ regard for House invites Oppn ire By Kay Benedict in New Delhi THE UPA government cut a sorry figure on Wednesday when a solitary cabinet minister was present in the Lok Sabha during Zero Hour. In fact, the entire treasury bench wore a deserted look with almost all the ruling alliance MPs — particularly those from the Congress — choosing to stay away. The livid Opposition got fresh ammunition to beat the UPA with the ‘ governance deficit’ stick as BJP leader Yashwant Sinha succinctly observed that the government was “ dumb, deaf and absent”. Kapil Sibal, the lone cabinet minister present in the Lower House, valiantly tried to make a case for the truant MPs of his party but his argument got drowned in the ensuing din simply because he was outnumbered. Crossing swords with him, Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj made scathing comments against the “ casual attitude” of the government towards “ matters of public importance” being raised in the House. A dismayed ...
Yashwant Sinha breaks party line, bats for Pranab Mukherjee as President
Not backing Mukherjee for president: BJP New Delhi, May 9 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Wednesday distanced itself from senior party leader Yashwant Sinha favouring Congress leader and Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee as a presidential candidate. A day after Sinha wished luck to Mukherjee in the Lok Sabha for moving to the "big house", meaning the president's house, party leader Gopinath Munde said Sinha did not mean to say that he was supporting his presidential candidature. Sinha was however quoted by the Economic Times newspaper to have said: "Mukherjee is suited to occupy the post of president." "If someone does something good, we should appreciate him," Munde said referring to Mukherjee. "But it does not mean we support him as a presidential candidate," he said. Asked about Sinha's comment, he said "he did not mean that", refusing any further comment. The BJP leader added that he will not comment on who would be the candidate supported by BJP. "We will not comment on this (presidential can ...
