Shatrughan Sinha’s Rather Stinging Swipe at Narendra Modi

Shatrughan Sinha on PM Modi's Africa visit: "Heavens wouldn't have fallen if you'd left after Parl session"

A series of tweets, actor-turned-politician and BJP lawmaker Shatrughan Sinha took a rather stinging swipe at PM Narendra Modi, who is currently in South Africa on the last leg of his three-nation tour.

Sinha took a jibe at the PM, saying how when the Parliament is still in session, the PM is out on a tour.

Actor-turned-politician, BJP lawmaker Shatrughan Sinha, who is known more for his anti-government jibes, took a sharp swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on late Wednesday night, in a series of tweets.

Sinha attacked PM Modi on how while the Parliament is still in session, the PM still undertook the three-nation tour to Uganda, Rwanda and South Africa.

He, in the same tweet, also congratulated the PM on being the first prime minister to visit Rwanda on his tour.Sinha tweeted, “Heavens wouldn’t have fallen if you’d left after the session.

You could have still visited some of the nations left on the globe. Your visit to Rwanda is a first by an Indian PM Congrats!”

Over the course of his next few tweets, Sinha also spoke about how Modi’s handshake in Rwanda would be within the protocol, referring to Rahul Gandhi’s hug in the parliament.

He also asked Modi to provide an answer to people who are alleging that he was involved in the horrific deeds of lynching by gau rakshaks. “… But Sir! Back home, Opposition is in big news over lynching by Cow rakshaks,” tweeted Sinha.

Sinha also threw in a reference to the opposition’s moving a privilege motion on the Rafale fighter jet deal against the government. Congress, on Tuesday, had moved a privilege notice against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman claiming that they “deliberately misled the House” on the price of Rafale jets.

“It is, therefore, requested that the notice of Breach of Privilege be accepted and referred to the Privilege Committee of the House for further proceedings,” the notice, signed by Mallikarjun Kharge, stated.

Shotgun, as Shatrughan Sinha is called, also mentioned reports that PM Modi had gifted 200 cows to a village in the eastern African nation and how it was a great and thoughtful initiative.

Sinha, last week, surprised opposition and his party members alike, after he declared that he will vote against the Telugu Desam Party’s (TDP) no-confidence motion.
