The BJP is down but not out and it will certainly bounce back much like the Sensex does, Bollywood actor-turned-party leader Shatrughan Sinha has said.
“It is true the BJP has 116 Lok Sabha members -- 90 behind the ruling Congress -- but still it has a big national presence and occupies almost the entire opposition space. Plans are afoot to revitalise the party,” the former union minister said on Wednesday.
He said the party, which had once only two seats in the Lok Sabha, was able to take its strength to 200. Like the Sensex, the BJP’s fortune fluctuates and it will definitely come back.
Mr. Sinha, who came here to campaign for the BJP candidates for the October 13 election to the 60-member Arunachal Pradesh assembly, said he was present along with senior leaders at a long meeting with RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat recently to chalk out plan to revitalise the party.
Asked about the plans, Mr. Sinha said, “You will see when the plans are implemented.”
