Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 13 denounced the accusation of being 'hand in gloves' with crony capitalists and said that government's cronies are the common 'janta' of this country. Finance Minister was replying to the Budget discussion in the lower house of the Parliament. "Where are the cronies? They are hiding probably in the shadow of that party which has been rejected by the people. The shadows who were invited to even develop a port. They invited, no open tenders, no global tenders. Who are our cronies? Our cronies are the common 'janta' of this country," said Finance Minister in Lok Sabha.
