New Delhi: Actress Sonakshi Sinha spoke up on Saturday about her father Shatrughan Sinha leaving the BJP and joining the Congress. She said it was her father’s choice. “It is his choice. I believe if you are not happy about anything, bring about some change. He did the same,” the actress said.

Sonakshi Sinha said she hoped her father would do better work with the Congress and would “not be isolated”. The actress said further, being a member of the party from the time of Jayaprakash Narayan, Atalji and Advaniji, her father enjoyed a lot of respect inside the party, “but I feel that entire group was not given the respect they deserved”.

Sonakshi thinks Shatrughan delayed the decision; that he should have left the BJP a long time ago.

Veteran leader Shatrughan Sinha had been raring to join the Congress by breaking ties with the BJP. The famous actor says he did not leave the party; the party left him. The party (BJP) always misunderstood what he said, he insists.

In an interview, Sinha said, “I was just showing them the mirror. A one-man show and a two-man army spoiled everything.”

Sinha said that LK Advani and MM Joshi had to face the same issue. He said, in the last election, he did not win because of the Modi wave but because of his own charisma. This time, “Modi means an atmosphere of terror”.

Sinha said if RJD-Congress relations were not to work out, he would try to bridge the gap between the two parties.

After meeting Rahul Gandhi, Sinha said the Congress president was younger to him, “but he is a very popular, young and loving leader of the country”.

According to Sinha, the nation is looking upon Rahul Gandhi. “I have been a great supporter and fan of Rahul Gandhi, his family, Gandhi-Nehru family, always. You must have seen that I have never said anything wrong about them because I am qadradan (admirer), and I consider those people nation builder,” the actor-politician said.

Editor’s note: Shatrughan Sinha was never a part of the Jana Sangh, the original avatar of the BJP, which existed at the time of Jayaprakash Narayan who died in 1979. The BJP was formed, comprising eminent members of the Jana Sangh three months after the fall of the Charan Singh government in 1980. Shatrughan Sinha contested an election on a BJP ticket for the first time in 1991 a few months after joining the party.
