News

New Delhi, November 12: BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha today said he had never suggested that Bihar Assembly poll results could have been different had he been declared the chief ministerial candidate.

He, however, said that things could have been better if he had campaigned in the elections.

"Media tried to create an impression that I had suggested that results cud've been different if I was CM candidate," Sinha tweeted.

BJP lost badly in the recent Assembly elections in Bihar and there are murmurs of dissent over the way campaigning was done in the state. Sinha was not involved in the campaigning.

He further said "Nonetheless, now that the verdict is out and we're saddened by this humiliating defeat, we should not run away from fixing responsibility."

In another post, he said, "A more enthusiastic participation of my friends, fans, voters and supporters wud've certainly helped to make a difference at a few seats." 

"I am not a Rajya Sabha MP. I've come through the support of masses and won 2 Lok Sabha elections with record margin. I have a support base! 

"Despite sincerity, efforts & intention Bihari Babu was kept away from campaigning for my people. My friends, voters&supporters were let down," the actor-turned-politician said.
