Patna (Bihar) [India], Mar 26 (ANI): BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday continued his thinly-veiled attack on actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha for been critical of the party's top leadership on various occasions in the past and said that voters of Patna Saheb constituency will not remain silent.
"The whole of India wants Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remain in power for the second time. One more thing I want to say is that voters of Patna Saheb constituency will not remain silent," he said while speaking to media persons.
Prasad's statement came just a few days after the Patna Saheb seat held by Sinha since 2009 was given to Prasad.
However, after flying to Patna from New Delhi, Prasad was greeted by chants of ‘go back’ from supporters of businessman and BJP leader R K Sinha at the airport.
In a video that went viral on social media, Sinha’s supporters can be seen shouting slogans of ‘Ravi Shankar Prasad, go back’ and ‘R K Sinha Zindabad.’
They were apparently agitated over Prasad getting the ticket for Patna Saheb seat.
Protesters claimed that Sinha was their leader from Patna, and Prasad never even came to meet the people.
