General elections 2019: BJP now follows autocracy and dictatorship, says Shatrughan Sinha

Updated : May 08, 2019 07:24 PM IST

Actor-turned-politician and Congress leader Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday said that he left BJP as the party now follows autocracy and dictatorship.

In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Sinha said, "I have never acted against the party (BJP). My actions were always in the national interest and for me, the nation comes above the party and an individual."

According to Sinha, BJP is trying to distract voters as they have failed to fulfil their promises, "Demonetisation was the biggest scam in the country and none of the schemes such as Made in India, Skill India etc worked on the ground."

"Today, BJP workers have made one person as God,” he added.

In Patna Sahib in Bihar, Sinha is pitted against union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
