Shatrughan Sinha joins Congress, says BJP 'a one man show'
New Delhi : Lok Sabha MP Shatrughan Sinha officially joined the Congress Party on Saturday at a function in New Delhi in presence of senior party leaders KC Venugopal and spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.
On the occasion, he slammed Bharatiya Janata Party and said “I saw democracy changing into dictatorship in the BJP…It has become one-man show and two-man army."
He also cleared that he will be contesting in the Lok Sabha Polls from the Patna Sahib constituency, not from Patliputra.
“The Congress played the biggest role in bringing India’s Independence. It was wholly and solely responsible for freeing India from the colonial rule,” he said at a press conference at the Congress headquarters.
The decision comes days after Shatrughan Sinha held a meeting with Congress President Rahul Gandhi at his residence in New Delhi on March 29.
Sinha, incidentally, joined the Congress on the foundation day of the BJP. “I congratulate the BJP on its 39th foundation day. I received my political training in the BJP. But it was Congress leader Subodh Kant Sahay took me to public life for the first time,” Sinha said.
