Narendra Modi-Nitish bonhomie: Shatrughan Sinha lauds PM for taking initiative in bridging gaps

Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking the initiative, bridging the gaps and attempting to build consenus with political opponents.

The Patna Sahib MP made these comments days after a bonhomie between the arch rivals was in full display on Saturday, with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar urging PM Modi to "keep visiting" the state while the latter gesturing masses chanting "Modi, Modi" to calm down while Kumar spoke.

Lauding PM Modi's and Kumar's bonhomie, the actor-turned politician tweeted, “Delighted that our dashing, dynamic PM has taken the initiative in bridging the gaps and moving towards consentual politics....”

The BJP leader expressed apology for not being able to share dais with the PM, during his Bihar visit last week. While apologising, he tweeted, “I am sorry I could not be there with our people, with our progressive PM Modi and our development oriented CM Nitish Kumar.”

“In the interest of development & progress of my Bihar, I would have been there with our dashing, dynamic and action hero Prime Minister.”

“On the stage and everywhere during his recent visit. Unfortunately, due to a tragedy in my family, I was unable to accompany him,” his another tweet said.

The BJP MP also expressed concern over the condition of Mahatma Gandhi Setu bridge. While talking of bridges, “I am greatly concerned about the condition of Mahatma Gandhi Setu, the lifeline connecting North & South Bihar. It is in urgent need of repair & stregthening. Hope wish and pray that the much needed, desired and deserved package,” he tweeted.
