- Shatrughan Sinha is a BJP MP from Patna Sahib Lok Sabha constituency
- Mr Sinha has often posted comments on social media against his own party
- Shatrughan Sinha also praised BJP-critic, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal
"Its not necessary that the most famous people are the most trustworthy. The sooner "traitors" are thrown out of the party the better," Sushil Modi tweeted today.
He also punned on the word "shatru" or enemy when he said, "The Lalu who even Nitish Kumar did not defend is backed by the BJP's 'Shatru.'"
Shatrughan Sinha, who is a BJP member of Parliament, had this morning called for an end to "negative politics and mudslinging by opponents on our political leaders, be it Kejriwal, Lalu (Prasad) Yadav or Sushil Modi."
He did not name Sushil Modi as he advised him to "substantiate your claims..or pack up! Can't just keep feeding media with one night stories & sensationalising. Enough is enough!"
Sushil Modi has spearheaded his party's attack on Lalu Yadav, alleging the veteran Bihar politician and RJD chief's involvement in corrupt land deals worth 1,000 crores. Mr Modi shares icy vibes with Mr Sinha, who has been sidelined for months and has seemed for all that time to be on the verge of being thrown out of the BJP owing to his controversial comments on social media, often attacking his own party.
Today, he had fulsome praise for another bitter BJP critic, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party, who has been accused by a former minister of corruption.
"Individually I hold all political leaders, especially Kejriwal, in high esteem for their credibility, struggle and commitment towards society," Mr Sinha tweeted.
Hours later, his tweets took on Sushil Modi, who he blamed for the BJP's loss in the Bihar assembly elections.
Some people who are wholly & solely responsible for OUR party's debacle in Bihar r today crying hoarse,hoping to regain their lost image 3>4- Shatrughan Sinha (@ShatruganSinha) May 22, 2017
