Taking a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha said the former could have waited for the monsoon session to get over before he left for the three-nation tour. Shatrughan Sinha took to Twitter to criticise Modi's frequent foreign trips, silence on mob lynching and absence during a crucial monsoon session of Parliament. 

"As usual, while Parliament is in session, you are on a 3 Nation African tour. Heavens wouldn't have fallen if you'd left after the session. You could have still visited some of the nations left on the globe," Sinha tweeted on Wednesday. 

Echoing the opposition, Sinha also requested Modi to shun his silence on the issue of mob lynching, adding that he could do speak against it from a foreign land, too. He also requested the prime minister to guide his party colleagues as the opposition has moved a privilege motion on Rafale deal against the government in Modi's absence. 

The outspoken MP from Patna Sahib constituency has often made headlines for chiding his party and its members. Shatrughan Sinha has not been in BJP's good books for his frequent comments against the central government and the BJP. 

As recently as last week, Shatrughan Sinha took everyone by surprise when he justified Congress President Rahul Gandhi hugging Modi amid a session in Parliament. "What's the big fuss, hue & cry over a "Pyar ki Jhappi", an affectionate hug? Dynamic young leader of the youth & generation next, @RahulGandhi spontaneously gave a warm hug to our Hon'ble PM after his speech in Parliament. What a splendid gesture?...1>2 (sic)" he had tweeted even when Modi himself criticised Rahul Gandhi's actions.
