Rajan should continue as RBI chief, says Sinha

Senior BJP leader and former finance minister Yashwant Sinha on Saturday said Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan is a good economist and should continue in his position.


"If it is in my control, I will continue with him. He is a good economist. Till now he has proven himself as a good Governor and he should continue," he told Focus TV.

Sinha's statement comes in the backdrop of speculation that the RBI Governor could be changed if the Narendra Modi-led NDA comes to power after the general elections.
The nine-phase election is currently under way and counting of votes is scheduled for May 16.

Rajan, a career economist, was appointed by the UPA government and assumed charge at the RBI on September 4, 2013.
