The Bollywood turned politician, now MP from Patna and former union Health Minister in Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s government, Shatrughan Sinha, as usual since prime minister Narendra Modi led government came into power at the centre in 2014, has been constantly opposing the national leadership of BJP, the PM and the party supremo, but the high command has not shown the guts to expel him from the party for the reasons best known to them.

The eloquent veteran Bollywood star turned politician who considers former home minister and BJP’s towering leader, now in political oblivion, Lal Krishna Advani as his chief mentor, had been opposing prime minister Modi and his each and every action, every now and then, giving the unambiguous impression that he is not in BJP but the spokesman of the BJP’s bete noire Congress Party. However, the patience of the party supremo Amit Shah should be lauded as the MP from Patna is still in the ruling party’s roll and gunning party and government’s policies from within the BJP for the last three years incessantly by Sinha, bringing the party in a fix on several issues raised and propagated by the party, has actually given the star turned MP more boost and encouragement.

Actually the fact of the matter is that Shatru wants that the party expels him first so that his MP ship remains secured as per the norms of the anti defection law and the BJP leaders think that he leaves the party himself and has therefore been cornered and isolated completely. But Shatru would not budge as keeping his membership of lok Sabha safe is his first priority. However sources say that perhaps he may leave the party after he bargains adequately with the Congress or may be that the leadership in BJP relents later on.

However, things are quite unpredictable for now. Meanwhile, If you go through the twitter account of Shatrughan Sinha one will be surprisingly shocked, particularly the BJPites that more than 50% of his tweets, perhaps even more, are directed against his own party’s top notch leaders including the PM acknowledging maximum retweets and likes.

The way the die hard supporters of the PM and BJP show their anger, annoyance and confrontationist attitude or posture towards their ardent opponents on social networking sites, it seems to be missing in Shatru’s case, giving a clear impression that he still commands tremendous support and patronage within the BJP and perhaps that’s the reason, the Patna MP is not being expelled from the party fearing his chances of joining the Congress.

How badly is Shatrughan Sinha against the BJP leadership today can be gauged from the fact that while the entire BJP and its rank and file is supporting BJP Supremo and MP Amit Shah nationally on his Pakodaa related speech in the upper house yesterday, the former is leaving no chance to speak against him publicly as if he is directly serving the political purpose of Congress and other anti BJP opposition parties.

In his tweet of 5th February, Shatrughan Sinha sarcastically wrote: Respected President, We do admit that selling of Pakodaas is not a shameful act…. but shame for those who elect such government which is least worried or concerned on postgraduate youth selling Pakodaas but instead praises itself ( pats its own back) for this act. This statement unambiguously mean to say that instead of giving employment to the post graduate youths of the country the govt prefers to appretiate itself for encouraging educated youths to sell Pakodaas. The tweet got 1.034 likes, 458 retweets and 146 comments, till the time of writing this story. What’s your take friend?



It seems that all is not well in the Bhartiya Janata Party these days with voices of dissent under the garb of strengthening the internal party democracy coming up acrimoniously by its own leaders carrying behind them enough political weitage, popularity and even publicity potential. Till yesterday no one even dared to raise their voice against the party and its top leadership but now things have gone to such an uncontrolled level that after the former finance and external affairs minister during Atal Bihari Vajayee’s tenure eloquent Yahwant Sinha’s outbursts (though definitely amid frustration for not having been importantly accomodated in the party) challenging the finance minister Arun Jaitley and the PM’s economic policies now another former health minister and actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha too has come out in support of the latter as a strong disenter of Modi.

In several incessant tweets after the publication of Yashwant Sinha’s Indian express article denouncing the post demonetistion and GST economic policies of PM and FM, Shatrughan Sinha has asked prime minister Modi to hold a press conference and answer all the queries of Yashwant Sinha in the context of the economic policies to let the entire country know the realty behind them. His one of the tweet says “Its high and right time that our prime minister respects demcracy and faces the press and public.”  Despite directly questioning the PM and asking him to answer the queries he seems to be little or least bothered about the political consequences and tweet’s in the end as JAI BJP, JAI MAHARASHTRA, JAI BIHAR AND JAI GUJARAT. Sounds interesting. Since the day the Yashwant Sinha episode started, Shatrughan Sinha who is currently the member of Parliament from Patna city tweeted good number of times, one after another in a single go, fully backing the bete noire of prime minister Modi and the FM Jaitley, the former bureaurocrat turned union minister Yashwant Sinha.

This is not the first time that the former health minister Shatrughan Sinha has been vocal against the party’s top leadership but in the past too in the matter of former deputy prime minister of India and BJP stalwart he had come to the rescue of Lal Krishna Advani to the utter dismay, shock and surprise of the party high command. The situation then so badly went against Shatru then that there were voices of his possible expulsion from the BJP but the leadership exercised constraints thinking that the actor turned politician will mend his ways. But by this current breach of party descipline by questioning the prime minister, instead of discouraging the PM’s bete noire Yashwant Sinha it seems sure that the days of the one time villain of Bollywood films are numbered and can be expelled any time in the near future before things go out of hands and more dissenters join Sinha’s bandwagon.

In the meanwhile Yahwant Sinha while replying to the charge of BJP leaders that he was a leader and minister of no consequence, said that if it was so then why was he made the external affairs minister of country. Some of SHATRU’s hard hitting tweets are as following in the pic.



The Congressmen are the happiest lot today. The main opposition party, the Congress and its senior leaders are losing no opportunity to politically exploit the situation to their outright political advantage and the situation has been created by none other but the most vociferous and knowledgeably eloquent, an economic expert and the former finance minister of India and BJP’s controvertial leader these days, Yashwant Sinha.

Having served as a high ranking bureaucrat to the rank of Secretary and an IAS now retired, before joining active politics, Sinha has in an article just two days ago published in prestigious English daily, The India Express has articulated ( to be precise) that the private investments have shrunk to the worst during the last two decades, industrial production to has gone down considerably with the agricultural sector in total disarray compounded with the worrisome condition of the construction industry that guarantees good amount of employment with service sector higly discouraged and the exports being dwindled. Other key sectors too being in  in a worrisome phase.

The article criticizes the demonetisation and GST execution, terming them as a failure and the main reason for the lowest growth rate leading the people of the country in the state of quandry and unmitigated financial mess. Though the union home minister Rajnath Singh and Railway minister Piyush Goyal have worked as prime ministers best trouble shooters by ably, timely and efficiently countering Sinha’s anti Modi lambasting,  the Congress too lost no opportunity to exploit the situation to its maximum advantage by not only congratulating the prime minister’s bete noire Yashwant Sinha for bravely standing up to raise his voice on the ugly shape of the Indian economy, post demonetisation and GST but also said what Congress party as an opposition political outfit have been saying every now and then in the context of the ill effects and downfall of the country’s economy has now been publicly vidicated by its own former FM and an important leader.

In a statement former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said that we are happy that BJP’s own leader and ex finance minister Yashwant Sinha has echoed the same sentiments what Congress party has been crticizing tirelessly for long but the BJP and the government were not prepared to listen. He added that Sinha has also expressed the same views as that of the Congress Party that the exports have dwindled and the condition of our economy has gone from bad to worse.

The former Uttarakhand chief minister who lost from both the assembly constituencies in Uttarakhand, has also tweeted to congratulate Yashwant Sinha for standing with the Congress Party’s post demonetisation criticism of NDA and said that the country’s economy is indeed in a shattering state with a bleak future ahead.


It seems that though steadily but gradually, the revolutionery effects of the highly over ambitious executions of dear to heart projects like demonetisation and Goods and Services tax Tax are boomeranging not only amongst the common masses of the country but the prominent BJP leaders too are gathering courage to openly come out against the BJP leadership knowing very well that a huge price to be paid back is in the offing.

The statement of Yashwant Sinha, the former finance minister of BJP and father of the junior finance minister in the Modi government, who had to finally give up the finance portofolio, Jayant Sinha is unambiguosly a huge rebuff to not only the finance minister of India Arun Jaitley but to the prime minister Modi as well. Not is good terms with the top notch leadership of the party and the government former finance minister Yashwant Sinha has also expressed his ire against his bete noire PM Narendra Modi when he said that after the Gujarat elections the latter would be consigned to dust.

It needs a politician within BJP to gather enough courage to go against the party’s top leadership and the nation’s prime minister in particular. But even after Yashwant Sinha’s son losing the junior finance portfolio his tirade against the prime minister and his finance minister Arun Jaitley has not stopped putting the entire BJP and the government in utter surprise, dismay and subsequent dillemma.

His open accusation of finance minister Arun Jaitley blaming him for derailing the country’s economy and casting serious aspersions for the complete failure of demonetisation and improper implementation of GST resulting inflation, unemployment and discouragement to investment climate etc speaks of the fact that the former finance minister is playing the role of opposition party Congress and amounts to immense damage to the party and government’s reputation in the days to come.

His shocking revelations in the country’s leading daily Indian Express blaming PM Modi and FM Jaitley of sidelining the RBI’ s former n present governors and unilaterally going on for demonetisation thus derailing the nation’s economy and the investment climate compounded with large scale unemployment and inflation have indeed made tremendous mockery of the finance minister and the government giving enough encouragement and fuel to the opposition Congress and its UPA constituents to futher surround the former on failures of demonetisation and GST implementation.

While Yashwant Sinha seems to be prepared for the worst eventuality his state minister son Jayant Sinha may perhaps also fall prey to the ire of party and government’s top bosses in the near future exactly as Rahul Gandhi’s BJP friendly cousin Varun is in a dock for his anti government and anti BJP vociferous statements on ROHINGYA MUSLIM REFUGEE AFFAIR. What do you say friends?
