Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday took to Twitter to express his deep anguish over the Mumbai civic body’s decision to demolish parts of his house. While doing so, he also took an indirect dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by calling him vindictive.

Without naming the prime minister, the rebel BJP MP from Patna, implied that the recent action by the BMC was because of his public criticism of the party.

He wrote, “Honourable Sir ….When all fora of inner party discussion is closed, the only avenue left is the social media for meaningful expression of free opinion. It should be taken seriously and sportingly. No need to be vindictive. Let’s be constructive & move on. Jai Hind.”

In a follow-up tweet, Sinha wrote, “……… otherwise its a minor affair about minor alterations at our house – Ramayan at Mumbai, which is being blown out of proportion.I have no complaint, no demand and no command. God bless All – Jai Hind.”

Sinha has been vocal in his criticism for the party and the prime minister on several issues. More recently, in November, he had taken a dig at Prime Minister Modi, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani.

While speaking at the book release ceremony of the JDU leader Ali Anwar he had said, “They ask me how can I speak on economic policy? I say, If an advocate can handle the ministry of finance, an actor (Smriti Irani) can manage the HRD Ministry, a chaiwala can scale heights and become PM, why can’t I speak on economic issues?”

Elsewhere, former finance minister, Yashwant Sinha, too alleged that PM Modi had denied him an appointment to meet forcing him to express his views  in the public.

Referring to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and BJP veteran LK Advani, Mr Sinha said “today’s BJP is not like the one in the days of Atalji and Advaniji.”

Speaking to reporters in Jabalpur, he said that in those days, even a “small-time worker could go to Delhi and meet party president Advani without appointment, who has targeted the government on many occasions recently”.

“Now even senior and important leaders don’t get appointment with the party president. So, I was not surprised when I did not get appointment for 13 months,” he was quoted by PTI.

Yashwant Sinha had launched a stunning attack on Modi and his economic policies by blaming the central government for the prevalent economic chaos in the country.
