Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP and former movie star Shatrughan Sinha organized a function at Hotel Maurya in Patna in honor of the new Mayor of Patna Sita Sahu, Deputy Mayor Vinay Kumar Pappu and all the newly-elected ward councilors of the Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC).
On the occasion, Sinha, an MP from Patna Saheb, appealed to the new Mayor to work towards improving education and health care in the state capital. He, however, refrained from talking about chronic water-logging problem that plagues more than half of the city for the past several days.
"The ward councilors are discussing problems being faced by the city, I am told. Our goal should be to make Patna both green and clean," the MP said.
At the end of the function, Sinha donated two ambulances to the Jaya Prabha Hospital in Kankarbagh.
Some of Sinha's detractors called the function a 'political stunt' and a preemptive move by him to drum up support for his candidacy for 2019 Parliamentary elections.
"The BJP MP has a very poor track record when it comes to performance. He also has a long history of criticizing his own party and siding with our opponents in Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Janata Dal – U. Now that the Lok Sabha elections are getting closer, Mr. Sinha is once again hobnobbing with local BJP leaders to secure their support," said a leader of the opposition camp in the PMC.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
