Patna. According to our sources, top BJP leaders are upset after hearing Shatrughan Sinha’s comment on ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ controversy. Sinha, who is also a BJP MP, had echoed the party’s position on the issue.
One of the senior leaders who came out of the party’s parliamentary meeting said, “Though our meeting was for ticket distribution in the upcoming West Bengal assembly elections, we could not ignore his comments on the ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ controversy triggered by Asaduddin Owaisi. We thought he’d say it was wrong to force anyone to say anything as he likes people to be ‘khamosh’, but he said that he felt pride in chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and will continue to do so in future.”
“Other than this, in the same interview he said that he would be happy if Amitabh Bachchan becomes the next president of India. We were thoroughly confused; he was recommending Amitabh Bachchan, but not someone like Sharad Yadav!” the leader explained why the party was uncomfortable with Bihari Babu’s latest statement.
“We immediately confirmed with forensic experts and found that it was a genuine video; no tampering. Our sources close to his family doctor confirmed he had not complained of any medical condition. Since it’s not rainy season yet, his DTH connection must also fine and he has been reading newspapers regularly to keep himself abreast of party’s view on different matters, so it was totally shocking!” the BJP leader said.
“The party parliamentary board unanimously concluded that something was wrong,” he further added, “We decided to not be silent spectator anymore and that’s why we have sent him a show-cause notice. We can’t afford a situation where our workers are totally confused over what exactly was happening.”
The leader reiterated that the entire party was united on the issue and even the margdarshak mandal agreed with the parliamentary board.
“Yes, entire party is one on this. Even Advaniji is livid with Shotgun after he recommended Amitabh Bachchan’s name ahead of his name for the post of President. This has hurt him the most after going through a disastrous month like February when Leonardo Dicaprio won an Oscar or Nehra came back to Indian team,” a BJP source told Faking News.
