Senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya on Monday used the dog analogy to attack the Bihar party MP Shatrughan Sinha.
Vijayvargiya, a BJP General Secretary and a party strategist for Bihar Assembly polls, likening Sinha to dog has come only days after he was forced to withdraw his controversial tweets calling Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan traitor.
While commenting on Sinha’s comments that Bihar’s poll results would have been different if he was projected as the CM candidate, Vijayvargiya said, “Jab gaadi chalti hai,kutta niche chalta hai, Kutta samajhta hai gaadi mere bharose chal rahi hai (When a car moves, a dog moves under it too, the dog believes that the car is moving because of me.) This party is not dependable on one person, it’s a whole organisation and there’s a big hierarchy here. Those who are out of it were on a ‘Maun Vrat’ and now they are speaking.”
The dog analogy was being used by a BJP leader for the second time in recent weeks after Union Minister V K Singh did so over the Dalit burning incident in Faridabad.
Vijayvargiya said that the actor-turned-politician owed his political identity to the BJP adding that he needed to decide on his loyalty to the party.
He said, “Shatrughan Sinha’s identity in politics is because of the BJP and BJP’s identity is not because of him. How much loyal he should be towards the party should be decided by him. Causing loss to the party even when you’ve taken so much from the party, that is for him to decide. I disagree with his behaviour.”
