PATNA: Taking a different line from that of his party amidst the ongoing Bihar polls, BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha today endorsed RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's call for a review of reservation policy, saying the latter's opinion should be taken "seriously."          

"Sri Mohan Bhagwat's views on review of reservations should be taken seriously. We hold the views of the RSS supremo in high esteem. Sad and disheartened at attempts by some people to ridicule and make fun of this highly learned, father figure of RSS/BJP," Sinha tweeted. The Patna Sahib MP made the statement even after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party had "categorically" distanced itself from its ideological mentor saying BJP did not support reconsidering reservation policy.  

Sinha, who is yet to hit the campaign trail, also said that all his actions and statements so far were for the larger interest of Bihar. "I am cool, calm, composed & least worried. Whatever I have said, done or will do is in the larger interest of Bihar, its people and our party. Bihari Babu is only interested in peace, prosperity, progress, growth and glory of Bihar, no matter where it comes from. Jai Bihar, Jai Hind," Sinha posted on the micro-blogging site.           

He warned people who termed him sulking, disgruntled and negative. "Warning to the vested interests, chamchas and some of my own people who call me sulking, disgruntled, negative or any other name," he tweeted.
