After BJP leader Yashwant Sinha attacked his own party for compromising the economy, Bollywood veteran actor and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha has said that he was following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's orders.

Citing the Prime Minister's earlier announcement of 'Nation first Party second', Shatrughan Sinha said that his elder brother was following the PM's lead.

Shatrughan Sinha tweeted, "I am of the firm opinion that everything that has been written by Mr. Sinha is entirely in the party's and National interest...1>2."

"Only recently our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reiterated that the Nation is bigger than the Party. National interest comes first," he tweeted in another.

Praising both Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie, the BJP leader said that both of them are extremely learned and experienced intellectuals. Neither has any expectation or interest in...1 is bigger than 2.

Sinha argued that his elder brother's utterances are always very well thought through and must always be taken seriously. It would be childish to be dismissive of 3 greater than 4.

He said that Mr. Yashwant Sinha is a true statesman & a tried & tested man of wisdom, who has proven himself as one of the best & most successful.

Earlier, the 79-year-old politician and former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha had written an editorial in the national daily Indian Express criticising Arun Jaitley for the 'deceleration' of Indian economy.

Sinha in the editorial titled 'I need to speak up now' said, " I shall be failing in my national duty if I did not speak up even now against the mess the finance minister has made of the economy."

Referring to the decline in national GDP, Sinha said, "The spokespersons of the government say that demonetisation is not responsible for this deceleration. They are right. The deceleration had started much earlier. Demonetisation only added fuel to fire."
