BJP drops Shatrughan Sinha from candidate list
March 24, 2019
Bharatiya Janata Party has decided not to give ticket to actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Shatrughan Sinha has been quite critical of the government and often speaks against the policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Shatrughan Sinha has been Lok Sabha candidate of the party from Patna Sahib in Bihar since 2009.
However, this time, BJP has announced that Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will be the party’s Lok Sabha candidate from Patna Sahib.
The situation may lead to Sinha fighting the elections on a Congress ticket from the constituency as there are rumors floating around to this respect.
Sinha took to twitter after his name was dropped from the party’s candidate list.
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
Sinha became bitter towards the party after the 2014 elections as he was not made a part of the cabinet even after winning the seat. He even attended the mega opposition rally of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in January showing an open defiance to BJP led government in the center.
Social media users had mixed reactions to Sinha’s omission from the list of candidates.
Rookie @rookie_tweet tweeted, “Replying to @ShivAroor @BJP4India Well it was long overdue ... all he did was crib and rant all the while. He needs to be KHAMOSH now #ShatrughanSinha”
