Shatrughan Sinha’s advice to PM: Sir, please hold a PC

NEW DELHI: Actor-turned-politician and BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha, who never hesitated from shooting his mouth off, on Thursday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold a press conference as his predecessors have done and take candid extempore questions”. “Sir, we all saw your well-scripted, choreographed, well-researched and rehearsed TV interview on Monday evening.

With due respect to the anchor, Wonder Lady Smita Prakash, isn’t it high time and the right time to enhance your image as an able and capable leader by taking candid extempore questions?” Sinha, who is a vocal critic of the Prime Minister, said in a series of tweets. Attacking Modi for not taking questions from the media, the BJP MP from Patna Saheb said, “We know you don’t want to face them (the media) but at least have the courage to answer questions from a statesman — Yashwant Sinha — and learned journalist Arun Shourie.”

Hitting out at Modi, he said that though in the interview he looked “calm and composed”, it was not “convincing or at par with his earlier performances”. Sinha also questioned Modi for not holding a press conference in the last four and half years and said, “In the past, all Prime Ministers have had Press conferences but, Sir, you haven’t had even one in your tenure of 4.5 years. Why, Sir?
