During the NDA regime, he went to Washington DC as senior adviser to executive director of the World Bank. Then, he was on a UN mission to Afghanistan coordinating issues relating to national development strategy and governance issues. Sinha became so engrossed into the Afghan affairs that he became an Afghanistan expert and wrote a number of newspaper articles on the subject.
Later, he became the chief secretary of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and then CMD of Delhi Transco Limited.
Sinha is post-graduate both in history and international communication and policy.
Last year, Sinha came under scrutiny when an IRS officer wrote to cabinet secretary Ajit K Seth complaining against Sinha of harassment and “sending of obscene text messages”. The woman officer is reportedly known to Sinha’s wife, also an IRS officer.
