Congress candidate from Lucknow Lok Sabha seat Acharya Pramod Krishnan has slammed actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha for campaigning for his wife Poonam Sinha who is a Samajwadi Party (SP) candidate from Lucknow only. After remaining as a dissident in BJP for several years, Shatrughan Sinha had joined the Congress party last month and he is contesting from Patna Sahib on a Congress ticket. A few days later his wife Poonam Sinha had joined the Samajwadi Party, and she was fielded from Lucknow. Shatrughan Sinha had accompanied his wife when she had filed her nomination, and he had also participated in the SP candidate’s campaigning.
शत्रुघ्न सिन्हा की “हरकतों” से लगता है, कि उन्होंने कांग्रेस ज्वाइन तो कर ली है,मगर अभी तक RSS से “इस्तीफ़ा” नहीं दिया है.

Acharya Pramod Krishnan, whose name is included in the list of fake babas of the country by All India Akhara Parishad, attacked Sinha supporting his wife despite being a Congress member.
Krishnan said that Shatrughan Sinha has joined the Congress Party but has not yet resigned from the RSS. “I want to say this about Shatrughan Sinha that he has joined the Congress but has not resigned from the RSS. Shatrughan Sinha’s whole family is still a part of RSS. I just want to tell them that they should stop betraying Rahul Gandhi Ji”, said Krishnan.
Blaming Sinha for degraded the dignity of Party, Acharya said, “Sinha Ji has crossed the limits of the Party before the whole country. He has degraded the dignity of the Party. He has disrespected Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi”. He said that Sinha is fulfilling his Patni Dharma while he should be fulfilling his Party Dharma. He added that Sinha should fulfil his party dharma by campaigning for him.
Recently an old video of Krishnan was doing the rounds on social media in which he is seen making communally provocative statements. “Those who don’t believe in Prophet Mohammad cannot be acceptable to us”, said Krishnan shouting Nara-e-Takbeer and Nara-e Risalat.
Sinha on being questioned about campaigning for his wife had said that he loved the party but not more than his family.
