New Delhi : The irrepressible Shatrughan Sinha has done it again. After praising Narendra Modi’s bête noire Nitish Kumar for days, Sinha met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday, another bitter rival of his party. Sinha”s move was obviously aimed at testing the patience of the party bosses further since the party has so far acted as if it does not care for his defiance.
Sinha met Kejriwal for over an hour on Thursday. Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and AAP leader Ashutosh was also present at the CM”s residence.
This unusual meeting follows at least four similar interactions with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar. Incidentally, Kumar has also met Kejriwal several times in the past few months.
Insiders say Sinha has been upset ever since his name failed to figure in the list of ministers in the Modi cabinet. Now that Bihar is all set for assembly polls, he is learnt to be seeking a ticket for his wife in the assembly.
