He even said that Sinha could be the right person as the Jharkhand chief minister. Sinha was arrested on June 2 and was produced in court on June 3 and sent to judicial custody after he refused to furnish a bail bond.
His judicial custody was on Monday extended till June 28.
Central BJP leaders like Rajiv Pratap Rudy and Shahnawaz Hussain met Sinha in jail last Thursday.
