Earlier, BJP denied Sinha the party ticket from Patna Sahib because of his constant criticism of Prime Minister Modi and fielded Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad from the constituency.
“He is younger to me, but today he is a popular leader of the country. I am a supporter of the Nehru-Gandhi family. I consider them nation builders,” said two-term BJP MP Sinha.
