Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shatrughan Sinha is not a happy camper after the Central government failed to renew his Z-security status that lapsed around May or June of last year forcing the Patna Saheb MP to go through the same security checks at airports as any ordinary traveler.

Sinha, a former film actor and a senior BJP leader, in a letter to the Home Minister, expressed his disappointment and anger with the callous attitude of the BJP-led NDA government saying if something happened to him, the Modi government would be responsible for it.

"How could things like these happen? Is it just a bureaucratic glitch or a well-orchestrated plan to put me in the line of danger? If anything happened to me, the Central government and the Home Minister would be responsible for it," a disgruntled Sinha wrote in his letter.

Continuing his anger towards his own party and the Modi administration, the former protégé of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and L K Advani said that if the Home Ministry could not provide protection to a duly-elected MP, how could one expect it to protect the general population of India.

Sinha went on to say that the Lok Sabha election was approaching very fast and he would be campaigning all over Bihar that would make him extremely vulnerable to threats.

"There is a wind of change blowing in the nation and it will continue to get stronger each day. I will be speaking directly to the people of India and for that I will be traveling quite a bit. Without the Z-security coverage, I will be under immense threat. I ask the Home Ministry to restore my security status otherwise it will be responsible if anything happened to me," Sinha, the star of hundreds of Hindi movies, said.
