SAGAR (MP): In an apparent jibe at partyman Shatrughan Sinha for praising AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, Madhya Pradesh BJP chief on Friday said that actors lack political acumen and they often speak in "filmy" language.

"Film actors don't have political understanding. They talk in a filmy way and do not have an ear to the ground," state BJP chief, Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan, said in reply to a question.

"Kejriwal's image has been good.. he too is a decent and good person," Sinha had said yesterday, at a time when his party is going hammers and tong at the AAP leader.

About BJP's membership drive, Chauhan said the party had taken a cue from Communist Party of West Bengal which remained in power for 35 years because of their large membership base.

Chouhan said that according to BJP President Amit Shah, the mega membership drive is the biggest campaign in the world.
