BJP’s Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday asked the “one-man-show and two-man-army”, referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party President Amit Shah, to return to Delhi from Gujarat if they have exhausted all their “tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises”.

Sinha, who has been sidelined in the party, has been regularly taking potshots at the party leadership via social media

“Please return home to Delhi, if we’ve exhausted all our tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises. Shatrughan Sinha

“Humble appeal to our one-man-show and two-man-army (Modi and Shah). Please return “home” to Delhi, if we’ve exhausted all our tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises. Time to also bring back the ministers, ministries and government sitting in Gujarat and fighting amongst themselves to get credit,” the actor turned politician said in a tweet.

“If we are victorious, we know you shall get full credit..but if we are not, then who will take the rap? There’s an old saying - “Taali kaptaan ko to gaali bhi kaptaan ko” (Leader must own up both victory and defeat). Hope wish and pray that we get only Taalis (claps) in Gujarat elections. Jai Hind!” the BJP leader said.

Modi , Shah and other senior BJP leaders have been on hectic campaigning in Gujarat where the second and final phase of assembly elections will be held on December 14 . Counting of votes will take place on December 18.
