BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Monday compared party Lok Sabha member Shatrughan Sinha with a dog.
"A dog runs after a car and thinks the car is running because of him," Vijayvargiya told the media.
Sinha, who has been criticising the BJP for keeping him out of the Bihar elections, said there could have been some difference in the BJP's showing in the polls had he been projected as the party's chief ministerial candidate.
The actor-turned politician also said "the BJP shall be my first and probably last party. I joined this party when it had two MPs and today it commands a majority".
