Sushil modi targets Shatrughan Sinha

New Delhi/Patna, May 22 : 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.

Earlier, backing the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor, Sinha said, “Individually I hold all political leaders, especially Kejriwal, in high esteem for their credibility, struggle and commitment towards society.”

The BJP leader’s remarks came at a crucial time when the party has been accusing both the leaders of being involved in corruption cases.

Former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Modi has been accusing Lalu Prasad and his children – Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav and Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti – of being involved in corrupt land deals.

Kejriwal has been accused of being involved in corrupt practices by suspended AAP legislator Kapil Mishra.

Sinha, taking a dig at his own party the BJP, said: “Our BJP surely believes in honesty and transparency, which seldom go together, but must go together. An allegation is only that unless proved.”

Sinha, who represents the Patna Sahib constituency in the Lok Sabha also said that it was “high time to substantiate your claims.. or pack up! Can’t just keep feeding media with one night stories and sensationalising. Enough is enough”.

Slamming Sinha, Modi said that it was not necessary to believe the actor and the party must remove such “traitors”.

“It is not necessary to believe the man who is famous. The traitors must be sent out immediately,” Modi tweeted.

“When Nitish (Kumar) didn’t come out in support of Lalu (Prasad), in his support the enemies of BJP has jumped now,” Modi said.

Sinha has been criticisng the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi since the 2015 Bihar Assembly elections after he was sidelined in the party.

He has backed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Kejriwal on several occasions.

New Delhi, March 28 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday urged the migrants to stay back in the city during the lockdown and said his government is serving lunch and dinner to over four lakh people at more than 800 locations.

Speaking to the media through a digital press conference, he said the government has operationalised 568 Hunger Relief Centres in schools, apart from 238 night shelters.

“We have the capacity to feed lunch and dinner to approximately 4 lakh persons daily,” Kejriwal said. He also said that apart from this, mobile vans are also deployed to arrange food for those who cannot reach the locations.

“Although there is some issue, I am expecting that these will be streamlined in a day or so.”

Kejriwal said the Aam Aadmi Party MLAs and party workers are reaching out to the migrants, and have been successful to stop a number of migrants.

“Lockdown should be implemented seriously. If we keep moving, the purpose of lockdown will be wasted. I urged the migrants at the border to come back to Delhi. We even opened night shelters in some of the schools around the border areas,” Kejriwal said.

He also said that the ration from April in around 1,000 ration shops has reached and will soon be distributed.

“Coronavirus is spreading very fast. In the countries which we thought were highly developed are facing a serious crisis. We should learn from different nations.”

The nationwide lockdown has started from Tuesday midnight, following which migrant labourers have started moving to their homes in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha.

  1. $22.5 bn not enough for 135 Cr population (Singapore 58 Lac-Grant $33 bn)
  2. 44Cr+ informal labour force left out
  3. Extend EMI Moratorium to farmers.”

It is not only the Congress leaders who are interacting with the masses through social media.
