New Delhi, March 24 : Hours after the Bharatiya Janata Party dropped his name from the list of candidates for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, party leader Shatrughan Sinha has launched a stinging attack on Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for the treatment given to LK Advani veterans and termed the party leadership as “one man show and 2 men army company.”
In a series of tweets, Shatrughan Sinha,the BJP’s sharpest homegrown critic,said in a string of seven tweets,he is “able and was capable of answering your people back in the same coin”.
“Nonetheless, people are watching at this hour, to give a befitting reply for all this that is being done by the one man show & 2 men army company. Long Live Shri. Advaniji! Jai Hind!,” Sinha, who is often called Shotgun for his fiery remarks, said people would give a befitting reply to the two men army company.
“Sirji, instead of playing Rafale Baba & Chalis Chokiwdar, which has already fallen flat on its face, it’s high time & right time to take some corrective measures (if you still can) & go for damage control soon, sooner the better. Meanwhile it’s worrisome, painful and according to some people, even shameful… that which your people have done was the most expected & awaited,” he said in a tweet, accusing the BJP of “orchestrating the departure of Advani from the political arena and election”.
Expressing his disappointment after the BJP named Amit Shah as the BJP candidate from Gandhinagar that Lal Krishna Advani has represented.
Sinha, who is two-time Lok Sabha MP from Bihar’s Patna Sahib constituency, also slammed the BJP for replacing him with Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad at the seat, saying that he was “capable of answering back in the same coin.”
The actor-turned-politician also vented his ire over the treatment meted out to party’s veteran leaders like Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha, and Murli Manohar Joshi.
“What you & your people have done with me, is still tolerable. I’m able & capable of answering your people back in the same coin. Remember Newton’s third law…every action has an equal and opposite reaction. And I am capable of paying back… But having done the same to stalwarts like – to begin with respected, Shri Yashwant Sinha ji, followed by most learned Arun Shourie, one of the top builders of the party, Shri. Murli Manohar Joshi ji & now last but not the least, Shri.L.K.Advaniji smacks of ingratitude..” he tweeted.
