BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha on Friday described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a “dashing and dynamic” leader whose hands need to be strengthened, given the current “turmoil” in the country and threat to its security and unity.

“Looking at the present atmosphere in the country wherein security and unity has been threatened, it is really important that we should support PM Modi and strengthen his hands to (help) the nation overcome this turmoil,” the Patna Sahib MP said.

He was addressing a function at the Symbiosis International University in Pune where a panel discussion was organised on his biography “Anything But Khamosh” penned by Bharati Pradhan.

Sinha said he has been supporting Modi throughout.

“I referred to him (Modi) (as) dashing, dynamic and now that dynamism of his needs to be supported,” Sinha told reporters.

On the ongoing debate over ‘intolerance’, the actor said he did not support the “award wapasi” and referred to a chapter from his book on how he had “whisked away” son of then Shahi Imam from Mumbai during the communal riots.

Commenting on Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula’s suicide, Sinha said “whatever happened is heartrending and condemnable”.

    shatrughan came form a poor family, lucky to get educated and then into acting college. he was always a show-off using others people's clothes. he got into bollywood, became a dashing fighting hero and then crazy indians thought he was another god. actually he was another dog! funny how birds of a feather, attract each other!

    Can anyone believe this actor. Nobody knows when he is real and when acting. Having so much confidence on Modi why he shifted his loyalty towards rivals during crucial stage. He could have met Modi personally and made his point if he is really aggrieved. Instead he choose to embarr party by his out of turn comments. Agreed some activities of the party may not be of the standard which Sinha thinks. It is there in all parties. Let him say which party is the ideal party for him. He is praising Modi because of the reshuffle of the cabinate is reported. he will speak bad if he does not get the berth

    यह बहुत खतरनाक लीडर है, देश द्रोही भी है. बीजेपी की इस से फटती है . हर रोज़ बीजेपी को जूते मारता है, पर बीजेपी की हिम्मत नहीं इस को कुछ कहने की. अडवानी अपनी बात इस के मुंह से कहलवा रहा है.

    Mr. Shatrughan Sinha shoots his mouth off at every opportunity. No wonder he was called shotgun Sinha.

    Can't afford to annoy all in the BJP, has to keep him in good humor. With his outspokenness, unlikely to get a nod from Modi, who likes quiet disposition
