However, he was dropped by the saffron party that chose to field Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad from the seat for Lok Sabha election 2019. Shatrughan has also been openly critical of prime minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. On 24 March, he accused Modi of treating party patriarch LK Advani in a "painful" and "shameful" manner.
