Individually I hold Arvind Kejriwal, in high esteem for his credibility, struggle: Shatrughan Sinha
A Twitter war erupted between actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha and his BJP party colleague Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday when the former tweeted in favour of RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying “enough of negative politics and mudslinging”.
Modi, responding to Sinha’s tweet, demanded that the “enemies of the party” (Sinha) must be “removed” at the earliest.
Sinha also said he hoped and wished that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party President Amit Shah take “notice of such unparliamentary utterances of some of our party people – that too against a senior party colleague & a staunch party loyalist”.
In reaction, Sinha accused Sushil Modi for the party’s loss in the 2015 Bihar assembly polls saying that “those responsible for party’s debacle are crying hoarse”.
“Some people who are wholly and solely responsible for our party’s debacle in Bihar are today crying hoarse, hoping to regain their lost image at the cost of some senior and popular colleagues who have an impeccable image,” Sinha said taking a jibe at the former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister.
He also said that positive criticism shouldn’t be taken as a rebellion.
“Positive and constructive criticism should not be taken as rebellion. Instead, it should ignite a debate within the party,” he said in another tweet.
“Wouldn’t like to comment on utterances out of frustration and desperation made against me by some vested interests and spoilers of inner party democracy,” Sinha, BJP MP from Patna Sahib, said.
He also said that sycophants criticise for the sake of criticism and get low and personal. “I pray that God should spare them for they know not what they speak,” he said.
He has backed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Kejriwal on several occasions. |READMORE…
