BJP spokesman and MP Rajiv Pratap Rudy said that the party has taken cognizance on Shatrughan Sinha. Describing the rally as an attempt to unite the rallyless people, Rudy further said that these people are those people who have gathered against one person only because of their selfish interests. They have gathered for the removal of the Modi government at the Center, but they should understand that the people are sensible and they are not going to get scared.
Addressing Mamata’s rally in Kolkata, Shatrughan Sinha said that I have never seen a more junky, spectacular and powerful rally than this. My accountability is first made to the public, therefore, whatever happens in the interest of the country which is in the interest of the public, I speak. People ask me why do you speak against BJP when you are in BJP? Are you rebellious? So I say that if the truth is rebellious then yes I am rebellious.
