NEW DELHI, JUL 7 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 7/8/2018 12:23:07 AM IST
Facing flak for garlanding people convicted for garlanding people convicted for lynching a man in Jharkhand, union minister Jayant Sinha on Saturday came under fire from his father Yashwant Sinha who said he was earlier ‘nayalak’(worthless) father of a ‘layak’(worthy) son, but the roles have now reversed.
The former BJP leader and union minister who resigned from the party recently, said he did not approve of his son’s action.
The former BJP leader and Union minister, who resigned from the party recently, said he did not approve of his son’s action. 
“Earlier I was the nalayak baap (unworthy father) of a layak beta (worthy son). Now the roles are reversed. This is twitter. I do not approve of my son’s action. But I know even this will lead to further abuse. You can never win,” Yashwant Sinha tweeted. 
Opposition parties today slammed Jayant Sinha for feting feting Ramgarh lynching convicts after they were released on bail even as the minister defended his action, saying he had full faith in the judicial system. 
Condemning Sinha’s action, the Congress slammed the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and accused it of fanning communal tension. “It is only in ‘New India’, where those who are supposed to get the noose are instead being garlanded,” the Congress said in a tweet. 
CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury also attacked the BJP for “tearing India’s social fabric” and promoting politics of hate.
