Bihar Assembly Elections 2015

None has the DNA to snub me: Shatrughan

BJP MP from Bihar, Shatrughan Sinha, reiterated on Wednesday that the responsibility for the Bihar debacle had “to be fixed”, saying that the “camouflage” of collective responsibility was unacceptable.

He said that those with “vested interests” were refusing to learn, something that was seen as a dig at the BJP leadership. None had the “guts” or the “DNA” to snub party MP R.K. Singh or him, agreeing with Mr. Singh on this count. The context: it had been reported that BJP general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal had “snubbed” Mr. Singh on Monday night. Mr. Singh had reportedly rubbished the reports a day later.

Mr. Sinha’s “DNA” remark was an apparent dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself, as the latter had made a controversial “DNA” remark against JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar during the campaign, leading to a controversy.

“Some vested interests are still at it... refusing to learn any lessons, still working on creating misunderstandings through misinformation. R.K. Singh, former Home Secretary and a proud Bihari Sher (a tough nut to crack), is right. No one has the guts (or DNA) to give us a fatkaar (snub),” Mr. Sinha tweeted.
