All is not well within BJP: Shatrughan Sinha


Film star-turned-MP, Shatrughan Sinha said there were some leaders whose dreams have been shattered after the party's poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls and they were leaking matters raised at the party fora to the media.
"Leakage of matters raised inside the party reflects that all is not well within the organisation," the MP from Patna Sahib Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar told reporters.
On who will succeed L K Advani, who is at present leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sinha said, "It can be anyone. May be even me. But Advani is not leaving. He is acceptable to all workers and will be leading the party."
Sinha said points raised by senior party leaders Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie and Jaswant Singh should be given due importance.
"They have been with BJP since its inception and hence the party leadership should seriously deliberate on the points raised by them," he said.
The three leaders had attacked the party leadership for not taking responsibility for BJP's debacle and opened the can of worms by airing their views in the media while analysing the defeat.

Asserting that BJP is a "truly democratic" organisation, Sinha said any person having the required talent gets the chance to lead the party, where "it is not necessary that the reins of power are passed on from the father to the son."
"A person who can ensure the victory of the party in elections will get his due in the party," he said.
Sinha alleged that some party leaders keep their mobile phones on while attending meetings to help mediapersons know what was going on inside.
"The media thus come to know everything that has transpired in the meetings," he said, explaining the modus operandi adopted by some leaders in leaking information to journalists.
