Post UP election results, Shatrughan Sinha praises Modi, walks back money power tweet

Sinha's generous comments comes five days after he, in a veiled attack, criticised BJP leadership including Modi and Amit Shah for using massive money power.

Following a stellar performance by the BJP in Uttar Pradesh elections, BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha does a U-turn on Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling him a dashing and dynamic leader. Congratulating Modi for the victory of the party in electorally important state of Uttar Pradesh, Shotgun said he was a charismatic leader full of energy.

"Heartiest and massive congratulations to our dashing and dynamic leader Narendra Modi whose energy and charisma is beyond compare. Congratulations also to Amit Shah, the best strategist, visionary, cool and calm, our National President" tweeted Shatrughan Sinha., BJP MP from Patna Sahib.

Sinha's generous comments comes five days after he, in a veiled attack, criticised BJP leadership including PM Modi and Amit Shah for using massive "dhanshakti" (money power) and orchestrating public support for Modi's road shows in Varanasi in the last leg of campaigning in Uttar Pradesh.

"Apaar dhanshakti and very often orchestrated janshakti in the form of massive crowd is invited or managed to flock around our netas in road shows," Sinha had tweeted five days on Monday (March 6).

Shotgun's tweets suggest he was sulking throughout the UP elections at being ignored by the party for campaigning in the state. Sinha was also unhappy that veteran BJP leader LK Advani was kept away from the UP polls.

However, a landslide victory of BJP in Uttar Pradesh has forced Shatrughan Sinha to bite the bullet.
