Shatrughan Sinha lauds PM, Shah for prompt evacuation of Indians from Wuhan

Sinha has been a BJP critic since long, before joining Congress last year

On the political front, Sinha decided to quit BJP after they decided to field law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad from the Patna Sahib seat.

In a surprise turn of events, Shatrughan Sinha, the actor-turned-politician thanked PM Narendra Modi for his prompt action over the evacuation of Indians from coronavirus hub Wuhan.

Sinha was BJP’s in-house critic, long before joining Congress last year.

In a series of tweets, he said, “With an attitude of gratitude, I salute you & your people for having done the needful in an emergency situation so soon, as I always say soon, sooner the better.”

The appreciation comes after the Indian government evacuated over 600 people from Wuhan, the Chinese epicentre of coronavirus. Along with Indians, seven Maldivians too were evacuated in the second Air India flight sent by the government.

Referring to his reputation of being straight as an arrow he said, “Since I am famous, or infamous, for calling a spade a spade, I acknowledge, appreciate & applaud you, your #PMO, also Hon’ble HM #AmitShah as well as #AirIndia & the crew who have risen to the occasion for evacuating our own children & students from #Wuhan, China, during the #CoronavirusOutbreak. Politics apart, elections far apart this humanitarian gesture was done in the nation(al) interest.”
