TMC leader and newly elected MP of Asansol has been showering praise on West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, saying that she may be the real game-changer in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. He termed Mamata the “Queen of Hearts.”
Shatrughan Sinha, the former BJP member who changed guard and joined TMC, won the Asansol Lok Sabha constituency bypoll, beating the BJP’s Agnimitra Paul by more than 3 lakh votes. Sinha left no stone unturned in singing the song of Mamata and said, “I am impressed by the queen of hearts, Mamata Banerjee. She is a tried-and-tested leader who is respected by all. We shall try our best to see that she becomes the real game-changer in the 2024 election. “
He further added that “I came into politics to fulfil my social obligation. I was influenced by Jayprakash Narayan. “
Lashing out at the saffron party, he said that he left and joined the All India Trinamool Congress because the saffron party had transformed into an autocracy from a democracy.
“Atal Bihari’s and LK Advani’s BJP was a democratic setup.”Today’s BJP, which is being run by the prime minister, is an autocracy,” said Shatrughan Sinha, who was a minister in Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s cabinet.
Narrating the story, he said, “I fought my first election against my friend Rajesh Khanna, who was fighting on a Congress ticket, and lost. It was a by-election. I didn’t want to fight it, but I did it because my mentor, Advani, told me to do so. Advani spoke to my wife and asked her to tell me to fight the election. “
The veteran actor turned politician has vast experience in the political field. After joining the TMC, he has been continuously singing Mamata’s song.
