BJP member of Parliament from Patna and actor Shatrugan Sinha on Sunday said that his party has not given him any designation in the organisation set up of the party despite his high stature. Talking to media persons he said, "mere pass kad to hai par party ney mujhey koi pad nahee hai" said Sinha in chaste Hindi.

He added that he was without a designation despite being in the member of Parliament for three consecutive terms - twice in Rajya Sabha and once elected for Lok Sabha in 2004 and also remained Union minister holding portfolios of health and family welfare and shipping.

Talking about Samajwadi Party's victory in Uttar Pradesh, Sinha said the experience of Mulayam Singh Yadav, which led to masking Akhilesh Singh Yadav as CM, has led to fall of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi.

Shatrugan Sinha, who was on his way back to Delhi after meeting daughter Sonakshi Sinha in Patiala, said that Gujarat CM Narendra Modi is the best person to become Prime Minister of the country, as the progress and development that took place in last nine years is matchless and has made the state cash rich in contrast to all other states in the country who are surviving on loans and borrowings.

"But nevertheless, there are other leaders also, LK Advani, Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj who could be considered for the top posts," added Sinha as an attempt to keep other leaders of his party also in good humour.

"Probably this is the last budget of UPA government and anything could happen to the Congress-led government in the Centre, as by increasing prices and fares rail in general and railways budgets respectively it has made 95 crore population of middle class, lower-middle class and below poverty line unhappy. So when general public is not satisfied with the government, it has tendency to fall," he added predicting mid-term polls.

"The UPA is in suicidal mode and none could save it, the NDA would not make any effort to make it fall, but it has started crumbling when its ally Trinamool Congress is not happy with Congress," he further added.
