Shatrughan Sinha and Narendra Modi
New Delhi, Oct 22: Shatrughan Sinha, who is known as a critic of Narendra Modi, took a U-turn ahead of BJP's mega rally in Bihar. Sinha, BJP's Lok Sabha MP from Patna Sahib in Bihar, praised Modi claiming that nobody can stop Modi from landing the job as PM of the country.

The 67-year-old Bollywood actor earlier had showed his disappointment with the party when it had announced Modi's name as election campaign committee chief. Sinha had joined veteran leader LK Advani who too had skipped the meeting Goa. The Bollywood actor had faced wrath from party leaders for praising Modi's arch-rival Nitish Kumar.

It seems that all Modi's critics within BJP have begun to change their opinion about the leader who has been elevated as BJP's prime ministerial candidate for upcoming Lok Sabha election which is expected to be held in 2014.

During his recent visit to Gujarat, Advani paid tribute to the chief minister and stated that he will be "elated" if Mr Modi becomes prime minister.

Sinha's statement surfaced at a time when BJP is preparing for holding a mega rally in Patna. Modi, who was banned from campaigning in the state for years, will address the rally first time at Kumar's city.

Bihar CM and JD(U) leader had put an end to the 17-year-old alliance with BJP citing Modi's elevation as PM candidate. Kumar claims that Modi is a divisive leader who did not intervene to stop hundreds of Muslims from being killed when Gujarat was seared by communal riots in 2002.
