New Delhi:Sensing disciplinary action from the party over his recent remarks, Bollywood actor-turned BJP parliamentarian Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday sought to remind his party that “every action has an equal and opposite reaction”.
In a tweet, the BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Saheb constituency, 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,” he said in another tweet.
A senior party leader said on Monday that BJP would not take any action against Sinha till the Bihar elections were over.
Sinha — popularly known as “Shotgun” — had recently called Nitish Kumar the country’s best chief minister and has been continuously embarrassing the BJP through his statements.
He had recently expressed unhappiness over the suspension of 25 Congress members by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.
He was also among the around 200 celebrities who had urged President Pranab Mukherjee to reconsider the mercy plea of 1993 Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon.
On Monday, Sinha tweeted to support Lok Janshakti Party president Ram Vilas Paswan as the chief ministerial candidate of Bihar.
“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,” he tweeted.
“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,” he said in another tweet on Monday.
