The BJP and renowned bollywood actor of yesteryear, Shatrughan Sinha, on Tuesday virtually dared his party to take action against him.
In a series of tweets, he warned that in the event his party resorted to such a move, there will be consequences as “every action has an equal and opposite reaction.”
His tweets said, “After some unofficial news channel reports- and there’s nothing official about it – people are seeking my reactions on unconfirmed and unofficial report that BJP will take action after the Bihar elections. 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.”
On Mnday, Sinha, had taken to micro-blogging site to express his opinion on who the party should project as the consensus candidate for the post chief minister in Bihar elections.
His tweets (five of them) read, “In my personal capacity and in the larger interest of BJP in general and NDA in particular, I strongly suggest the able, capable, acceptable, respectable and secular Ram Vilas Paswan as the potential /consensus CM candidate of Bihar from our side.
“I believe we should have announced our CM candidate. Not putting forward a candidate is a result of some confusion in our own camp. The only desirable and advisable personality from our side who will be acceptable to all of us is Ram Vilas Paswan. The ultimate decision of course lies with the party and its parliamentary board.”
Sinha had recently caused widespread speculation after held closed doors talks with two of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s bitter political rivals namely Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar and Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal. This had given rise to speculation that all was not well with the BJP in Bihar.
He had won from one of Patna parliamentary seats in 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
