New Delhi: Taking on his own BJP party again, actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday asked the “one man show and two man army”, referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah, to return to Delhi from Gujarat if they have exhausted all their “tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises”.
“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. Time to also bring back the ministers, ministries and government sitting in Gujarat and fighting amongst themselves to get credit,” Mr Sinha said in a tweet.
“If we are victorious, we know you shall get full credit..but if we are not, then who will take the rap? There’s an old saying – “Taali kaptaan ko to gaali bhi kaptaan ko” (If the captain gets applauded for victory, they should bear criticism for losses). Hope wish and pray that we get only Taalis (claps) in Gujarat elections. Jai Hind!” the BJP leader said.
Shatrughan Sinha, who has been sidelined in the party, has been continuously taking pot shots at the party leadership via social media. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have been on hectic campaigning in Gujarat for the state assembly elections, with the BJP facing strong anti-incumbency.
