“Our very good person, who has been the backbone of Bharatiya Janata Party especially in Bihar and in Gujarat, Shaktisinh ji… ” Sinha says before being corrected by the audience that Shaktisinh Gohil is a Congress leader and not the BJP leader. To that, Sinha says he said it mistakenly because today is also the BJP foundation day and since he is still new to Congress. He added that it was not intentional.
He will be contesting from Patna Sahib constituency on Congress ticket.
