Location is the same but situation changed: Shotgun
Patna,12 April(HS):Film star turned politician ,Shatrughan Sinha popularly known as Shotgun, on Friday, claimed that he was contesting the Lok Sabha elections from Patna to keep his promise to contest from the same location even in changed situation. Talking to media persons at Jayaprakash Narayan international airport here, Shatrughan said though he changed the party from BJP to Congress, still the constitutency, Patna Saheb is retained. Shatrughan who arrived here from New Delhi in a special plane alongwith Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee president, Madan Mohan Jha went to the PCC office -Sadaquat Ashram in a road show. He said his daughter and film heroin-Sonakhsi Sinha would not come for campaign as she is apolitical. She did not come for campaign in 2009 and 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he recalled. He said the people of Patna are the real star and they would support him. Shatrughan also recalled in the past too he had not invited the top BJP leaders, L K Advani, Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Yashwant Sinha for campaign. He won with a record margin in the country in 2014 elections though the state party leaders had worked against him, Shatrughan claimed. He wished good luck to the BJP candidate and union law and justice minister, Ravishankar Prasad and described him a gentleman, a family friend with good family background. He regretted the BJP leadership did not consult him on naming the party candidate for Patna Saheb. Reacting to the claim of Ravishankar that he was a "gully boy(boy of the streets of Patna), Shatrughan said he too was from Patna-"I was born here, had schooling here, went to college here.I am still known as Bihari Babu". Bihar had sent him to Parliament four terms-two in Rajya Sabha and two in Lok Sabha ,he said he hoped he would be re-elected again. He called the BJP ''''helpless''(bechare) and said they should have realised Patna Saheb is known by Bihari Babu. He said the RJD president, Lalu Prasad had approved his candidature from Patna Saheb.
