Sinha also said that whatever the situation, he would contest from Patna Sahib, news agency ANI reported.
The announcement comes days after Bharatiya Janata Party fielded Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad from Patna Sahib instead of Shatrughan Sinha, who is currently the sitting MP from Patna Sahib.
The actor-turned-politician has been at odds with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Still associated with the saffron party, Sinha has raised objections to a number of BJP decisions such as Rafale deal and the impact of demonetisation.
