Ahead of the Bihar polls, there might be some problems in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) camp. According to sources, BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha has been dropped from the campaigners list for the assembly polls.
Sources also say that other senior leaders like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi have also been dropped from the campaigners list for the Bihar polls.
Rebel BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha, has been at unease with the party leadership, making several statements that have been against the party line.
Recently, the 69-year-old actor turned MP from Patna Sahib virtually dared the party to take action against him. “I will not comment on unofficial report spread by vested interests. However one shouldn’t forget Newton’s third law ‘Every action has an equal and opposite reaction’,” tweeted Sinha who is said to be miffed at being “sidelined” in the party and the government.
A top party leader on Monday hinted at action against Sinha. “We will deal with him after the counting of votes,” he had said, when reporters asked him about what the party planned to do with him in the wake of his recent comments.
Sinha had recently praised Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who has come under severe attack from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him a man of development. He had held a long meeting with Nitish on a day the Prime Minister had attacked the Bihar CM at a big public meeting in Bihar.
He had also asked the party to announce a chief ministerial candidate in Bihar, while on another occasion he suggested that Ram Vilas Paswan could be the NDA candidate for the top post.
“I believe we should have announced our CM candidate. Not putting forward a candidate is a result of some confusion in our own camp,” he had tweeted on Monday.
Sources also say that other senior leaders like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, may be dropped as they are not being considered as crowd pullers.
