NEW DELHI: Veteran Bharatiya Janata Party leader and former Union finance Minister Yashwant Sinha is now going to guide the ruling Aam Aadmi Party government in the national capital.

Setting aside political differences the Delhi Assembly has chosen Sinha as 'margdarshak' to guide MLAs on the city government's budget to be tabled in the House on March 28.

Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on Wednesday said he had invited four persons including Sinha, who are experts in the field of finance, for an orientation programme for the MLAs on the process and procedure of the upcoming state Budget.

"Former Union Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha has accepted our invitation to guide the legislators on the state Budget at the Assembly premises on March 15. Sinha will also guide MLAs on questions to be asked on the Budget," Goel said.

Apart from Sinha, invitation was also extended to Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Delhi Finance Secretary.

Goel said Sisodia, who also holds the finance portfolio, would interact with the legislators. The BJP-ruled Centre and the AAP dispensation in Delhi have been at loggerheads over a range of issues.
