Patna: Bihar’s BJP Yuva Morcha has pasted posters here, demanding action against actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha for publicly criticising the party.
Colourful posters in Hindi targeting Sinha, who is the BJP’s Lok Sabha member from Patna Sahib, have come up near JP Golumber, the busiest point in the heart of the city, hardly 50 metres from the party’s state office.
After action against Kirti Azad, it is now time to punish Sinha for repeatedly targeting the party, say the posters.
Sinha has been vocal in his criticism of his own party. He attacked the party for the way it selected candidates and campaigned for the Bihar assembly election last year.
Sinha’s most recent criticism of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came last week when he questioned the senior leadership for favouring President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh.
Posters in Patna echo the demands voiced earlier by some party leaders that Sinha be disciplined for his anti-party activities.
The party had in December suspended Kirti Azad, whose utterances on corruption in Delhi’s cricket association have been seen as an attack on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who had headed the sports body for many years.
Azad is the BJP’s Lok Sabha member from Darbhanga constituency in the state.
