New Delhi: Lok Sabha Election 2019 is around the corner and the political parties are taking many big decisions to gain the victory in the Polls. According to the source, BJP is set to drop sitting MP from Patna Sahib Shatrughan Sinha and he is likely to be replaced by Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. Prasad's name was discussed in the BJP's central election committee which was attended by party chief Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Veterean actor Shatrughan Sinha has been critical of the party's top leadership on several occasions in the past. He has often taken a stance at variance with the official party line, including on demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax, and shared the stage with opposition leaders at an anti-BJP rally in Kolkata in January, where he was projected as the star speaker.
Deliberations continued till late in the night and the name of Rajya Sabha MP RK Sinha was also discussed for the Patna Sahib seat.
Earlier, Shatrughan had said that he will not change his constituency in the coming Lok Sabha election "whatever the situation", making clear he would contest again from Patna Sahib seat irrespective of the party decision.
