BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya Compares Shatrughan Sinha like a Dog Chasing a Car
New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member Shatrughan Sinha met with Janata Dal-United (JD-U) chief Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav a day after the Grand Alliance achieved a landslide victory in the Bihar Assembly elections.
BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya equated Sinha’s act to that of a dog chasing a car as he landed himself in another controversy barely 24 hours after the party-led NDA was humiliated in Bihar Assembly polls.
Vijayvargiya was asked to comment on Sinha’s remarks that the poll outcome could have been different had he been projected as the chief ministerial candidate and that those responsible for NDA’s defeat “should be taught a lesson”.
“When a car moves, a dog moves under it too, the dog believes that the car is moving because of me. This party is not dependable on one person, it’s a whole organisation and there’s a big hierarchy here. Those who are out of it were on a ‘Maun Vrat’ and now they are speaking,” Vijayvargiya said. “Shatrughan Sinha’s identity in politics is because of the BJP and BJP’s identity is not because of him. How much loyal he should be towards the party should be decided by him.” He said.
“I can’t say how much difference it could have been, but I can definitely say, some difference would have been there. We could have definitely got more seats than what we got,” he added.
The NDA got just 58 seats of 243 in Bihar polls.
