The Samajwadi Party on Thursday said it was in touch with actor-turned-BJP politician Shatrughan Sinha. “I am in contact with him (Shatrughan Sinha) on a regular basis. We spoke today also. Our discussions,however,have been informal. It does not come under the definition of a political discussion… but possibilities cannot be ruled out,” said SP general secretary Amar Singh on Thursday.

Sinha told The Indian Express that he had “tremendous love and respect” for Amar Singh’s “wisdom and sense of humour”. “However,this is purely personal and no politics should be read into it. BJP is my conviction,” he said.

Sinha is a leading BJP contender for the Patna Saheb seat to which party spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad has also staked claim. Amar Singh added that “Shatrughan Sinha is a faithful leader of the BJP and he will not go anywhere till his request for a Lok Sabha ticket from Patna Saheb is

rejected.”
