BJP leader compares Shatrughan Sinha with a ‘dog’ for meeting rivals


Internal rifts within the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seem to be getting deeper and deeper after the party suffered a heavy electoral defeat in Bihar, the country’s third most populous state.

Soon after BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha met Grand Alliance leaders Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav and congratulated them on their victory in the state elections, BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya compared the actor-turned-politician’s act with that of a dog chasing a car.

Responding to a question about Sinha calling Nitish Kumar a “successful” chief minister, the BJP secretary general said, “Dog runs after the car feeling it’s running because of him, but it’s not. The party doesn’t run because of one man.”

Recently, Vijayvargiya made headlines when he lashed out at Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan for his remarks regarding increasing religious ‘intolerance’ in India.

“Shah Rukh Khan lives in India, but his heart is in Pakistan. His films make crores here but he finds India intolerant,” BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya hit out at the actor in a series of tweets.

However, after being heavily criticised for his remarks, the BJP leader deleted his tweet. Earlier in the day, Sinha said those responsible for the BJP’s debacle in Bihar should be taken to task.

Praising Nistish Kumar, Sinha said he was a “tried, tested and a successful” chief minister.
