Veteran BJP leader, Yashwant Sinha may finally get to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Patna.

On October 14, Modi is scheduled to visit Patna University for its centenary celebrations. According to NDTV reports, the VC of Patna University has confirmed that even Yashwant Sinha, who’s both an alumni and former faculty member of the department of political science, has been invited for the event.

It is not yet known if Sinha has accepted the invite or not.

Earlier Sinha had told NDTV that he has waited for over a year to get an appointment with Modi.

Similarly, in a recent interview with The Wire, Sinha claimed he has sought an appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the Kashmir conflict 10 months ago and was "hurt" as it did not materialise.

I am hurt. I am absolutely hurt. That you ask for time, ten months has gone by…Let me tell you, ever since I have been in public life, no prime minister of India, starting with Rajiv Gandhi, has ever said no to a meeting I have sought… no prime minister has said to Yashwant Sinha, ‘I don’t have time for you.’

He had specifically criticized current Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for “making a mess of the economy”.

His column triggered a clash of words between Jaitley and himself.
