For the longest time, two ‘rebel leaders’ from the BJP, Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha, have been attacking the party, and if reports are to believed, Sinha has proclaimed that he is taking ‘sanyaas’ from politics and quitting BJP.
Today I am taking ‘sanyas’ from any kind of party politics, today I am ending all ties with the BJP: Former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha in Patna. pic.twitter.com/cOvInznyza

Amusingly, this proclamation of sanyaas comes days after Yashwant Sinha had taken to Twitter to assert that the BJP and PM Narendra Modi are scared to fire him.
He cannot fire me because he is scared.

With one the incorrigible rebels quitting the party after grandstanding about how BJP doesn’t have the courage to expel him, Twitter erupted with people asking Shatrughan Sinha to follow suit.
Veteran journalist Kanchan Gupta requested Yashwant Singa to take Shatrughan Sinha along as ‘sanyaas’ can be lone and the media wasn’t really interested in ‘exes’.
Dear @YashwantSinha ji , if there’s space in the car, please take @ShatruganSinha with you. As others who have left @BJP4India would tell you, ‘Sanyas’ is a very lonely place and kiss-and-tell #MSM has no time for exes. pic.twitter.com/i2ZzCkLzMf

Some tried to appeal to Shatrughan Sinha “courage” to urge him to follow suit.

Some even poked fun at Shatrughan Sinha with a hilarious spin-off on the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur” dialogue.

Others just said ‘good riddance’ and wondered when they would also get rid of Shatrughan Sinha.
Hope Yashwant Sinha take Shatrughan Sinha and Shourie with him too https://t.co/pK8c3lET8J

Meanwhile, an old tweet by Shatrughan Sinha paints a pretty picture of BJP waiting endlessly to get rid of Shotgun Sinha.
