Senior BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha feels the timing of the partys failed campaign to hoist the national flag in Srinagar was not appropriate and that the advice given by key ally JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar to desist from that was valid.
The former Union Minister also felt that the party should reconsider the issue of continuance of Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa who is facing charges of irregularities.
In an interaction with PTI journalists,Sinha said the BJP has been able to corner the government on major issues of corruption like those related to 2G spectrum allocation,CWG and Adarsh Housing Society and nothing should dilute that.
When you have a potent issue like JPC into the 2G spectrum scam in hand…it was not politically good time (to go for the Tiranga yatra)…it would have been better if it had not happened now, said the actor-politician while giving his frank views. Asked whether he had given any advice to the party leaders not to undertake the Ekta Yatra,he referred to the valid suggestion given by Nitish Kumar in this regard.
He said the party should continue the fight for JPC probe into corruption cases with greater zeal in a focussed manner and contended that the next two months would be crucial to determine which way things go.
Targeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh,he said his personal image was saving him so far but his ineffectiveness was getting exposed.
