BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday congratulated Rahul Gandhi on becoming the new Congress president. He also wished well for the future of Congress, India's oldest political party. He expressed his views in a tweet.
Shatrughan Sinha’s pro-Rahul tweet comes while top BJP leaders criticizing Rahul Gandhi on his becoming the Congress chief. In the past, the yesteryear Bollywood actor has expressed similar views on several issues that are against the BJP's official line.
Sinha, who has been increasingly critical of the BJP leadership, had referred to Modi and Shah as the "one-man show and two-man army". He had asked them to return to Delhi from Gujarat during the second and final phase of voting to elect a new Assembly in Gujarat. "Humble appeal to our one-man show and two-man army. Please return 'home' to Delhi if we've exhausted all our tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises."
On Wednesday, taking on his own party, Sinha had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah as to who would take the blame if the BJP lost the Gujarat Assembly election.
