Hazaribagh: Former Union Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha, along with 300 party activists, was on Monday arrested in a high voltage drama that involved the top official of Jharkhand State Electricity Board official, who was tied up by BJP activists over power crisis in the state.
Incidentally, Sinha admitted before the media of “instructing” the party’s women activists to tie-up JSEB’s Hazaribagh branch General Manager Dhanesh Jha using a rope.
“Yes, I have asked them to tie hands of the GM as women are the worst sufferers for not getting power. Their children’s education is also suffering,” Sinha told reporters.
The activists locked the Jharkhand electricity board office and staged a sit in, and did not allow any employee to enter the office.
