19 Motivational Quotes By Yashwant Sinha, Former Finance Minister Of India, That Will Help You Realize The Importance Of Hard Work.

Yashwant Sinha is an Indian politician who has occupied the portfolios of finance ministry and ministry of external affairs. At one point of time he was known as the Rollback Finance Minister, for his preposterous handling of the June 1998 budget which had to be rolled back the same day it was announced. However his journey from there to being named as the Finance Minister even before NDA gathered to decide the names of other ministers after winning the elections in 1999 speaks volumes of his talent.
Testifying to the fact that Yashwant Sinha was a quick learner on th ejob, a close aide confided that, "In the first few months most proposals needed to be explained at length to the minister.
But by now he is as knowledgeable on matters of finance as his two predecessors, and often lends his insights into plans."
Even industry veteran Sunil Bhandare agrees, "Sinha's grasp on matters of finance and industry has been quick and firm."
If these testimonials are not proof enough the market-friendly and growth-inducing policies he introduced in the budget of 1999 will certainly bury the hatchet of doubts for once and for all.
Here are a few pearls of wisdom from one of the finest political minds the country has ever seen.
