Critical of Narendra Modi government’s policies, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Shatrughan Sinha on Sunday ‘congratulated’ Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party. Sinha, in a series of tweets and wrote, “Hope wish & pray that you get divine justice soon, sooner the better. ‘AAP’ ki team aur khaas kar ‘AAP’ ko bahut bahut badhaai. Remember, when the going gets tough the tough get going. Satyameva Jayate! Jai Hind! (sic).” The Patna Sahib MP added that politics of vendetta or politics of vested interests just don’t last long. “‘AAP’ Aaye, ‘AAP’ Chhaye, ‘AAP’ hi ‘AAP’ Charcha ke Vishaye (talk of the town)!! Ghar ghar mein, Har khabar mein, Toh phir kis baat ki fikar ‘AAP’ ko? politics of vendetta or politics of vested interests just don’t last long. Don’t worry, be happy! (sic)” Sinha wrote.
This is not the first time Sinha has spoken against the party line. The BJP MP has been embarrassing his party on various issue over a long period of time. The 72 year old leader had attacked PM Narendra Modi at the time of Gujarat elections. Without naming Modi, Sinha echoed Oppositon and asked to ‘stop communalising’ the atmosphere. “Just to win elections anyhow, and that too at the fag end of the process, is it a must to come up with & endorse new, unsubstantiated & unbelievable stories everyday against political opponents? Now linking them to Pak High Commissioner & Generals?! Incredible!” Shatrughan Sinha said.
Hope wish & pray that you get divine justice soon, sooner the better .
‘AAP’ ki team aur khaas kar ‘AAP’ ko bahut bahut badhaai. Remember, when the going gets tough the tough get going.

“Sir! Instead of new twists & turns, stories and cover ups, let’s go straight to the promises that we made, regarding housing, development, employment of youth, health, “Vikas model”. Lets stop communalising the atmosphere & go back to healthy politics & healthy elections. Jai Hind!” he had said.
In a major decision, President Ram Nath Kovind has approved Election Commission’s decision to disqualify 20 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs in Office of Profit case. After the decision, AAP’s earlier tally of 66 MLAs in the assembly has been reduced to 46 MLAs. The decision also pushes national capital to a by-election for the 20 seats.
Earlier, the 20 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs had sought appointment from President Kovind to present their views, however, they didn’t get time, party leader Gopal Rai has said.On Friday, Election Commission had asked the President to disqualify the 20 MLAs on the charges of holding offices of profit, setting the stage for their ouster.
