'Khamosh': Posters tell Shatrughan to shut up

'Khamosh': Posters tell Shatrughan to shut up
Tired of Shatrughan Sinha’s constant jibe against the party leadership in the last few months, some activists of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) put up posters in Patna asking the actor-turned-BJP MP to remain “khamosh” (quiet).

The party Lok Sabha member from Patna Sahib, Shatrughan Sinha, perceived to be a rebel MP, has been attacking the top leadership since 2015 Assembly election.

On Wednesday, he expressed his dismay over the shabby treatment being meted out to the “Marg-darshak mandal” which includes BJP veterans L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

Prior to this, he had asked who advised the prime minister to impose President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh when the matter was being heard by the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court.

A known Advani loyalist, Shatru has been, however, constantly praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and referring him as “dynamic and action hero”, who is wrongly advised by his coterie.

Fed up of his criticism against the party and its top leadership, the BJYM activists on Thursday put up posters and banners in the state capi Shatrughan’s birth place, and asked him to remain “Khamosh”. The Bihar BJP, however, was quick to distance itself from the BJYM “protest”.

“We disassociate ourselves from BJYM protest,” said Bihar BJP president Mangal Pandey preferring not to speak anything against Shatrughan, who once upon a time was party’s star campaigner during polls.
