NEW DELHI: Facing flak for garlanding people convicted for lynching a man in Jharkhand, Union minister Jayant Sinha today came under fire from his father Yashwant Sinha who said he was earlier 'nalayak' (worthless) father of a 'layak' (worthy) son, but it is the reverse now.

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.
