BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha Sunday ruled out quitting the BJP and defended his outbursts against the party’s top leadership as just “pointing out facts in party’s interest”.

“I was in the BJP, am in the BJP and will remain in the BJP. If pointing out facts in party’s interest is rebellion, I am a rebel,” said Sinha. He added that “nobody faced action” despite the party facing debacles in Delhi, Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka elections.

Addressing a gathering in Nagpur during an event to felicitate veteran journalist SN Vinod, Sinha once again took a potshot at BJP leadership over Bihar loss saying, “Tali kaptan ko to gaali bhi kaptan ko (If captain gets applause, he should also face flak).” “Gaali here means criticism,” Sinha was quick to add.

“I do not have RSS background, but I am an honest worker of the party. I got elected by a record margin and have followers in Bihar. Yet there was an attempt to keep me out,” he said.

Recalling the criticism he faced for attending Sonia Gandhi’s Iftar party, he said: “Even the country’s dashing leader, PM Narendra Modi, attended weddings and congratulated rivals on victory. In politics, all these things do not mean you are leaving your party,” Sinha added.

Sources said Sinha tried to meet senior RSS leaders in Nagpur but was told that Mohan Bhagwat and Bhaiyyaji Joshi were not in town.

Even Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, who was scheduled to attend Sunday’s event, left for Delhi Saturday, fuelling speculation about Sinha being left alone. “My friend Gadkari had to leave for Brazil. I had not sought any appointment so there is no question of it being denied to me,” added Sinha

    He is losing it. His age and drinking having devastating effect on his mental faculties. May be AK belongs to this group.

    Is calling the party's deliberation as mujra, in the interest of the party?. He may be good as an individual but proved himself a traitor & exposed himself.

    You keep on saying, whatever you want to say. But the BJP and common man will keep ignoring you. That is what you deserve.
