New Delhi, Jan 30 (Agencies): Siding with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, senior BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha said that the timing of party’s Tiranga Yatra was not appropriate and the advice given by the CM was valid.

Touching upon the Karnataka issue, Sinha said that the party should reconsider the problem of continuance of Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa who is facing charges of irregularities.

"When you have a potent issue like JPC into the 2G spectrum scam in hand...it was not politically good time (to go for the Tiranga yatra)...it would have been better if it had not happened now," said the actor-politician while giving his "frank" views.

Asked whether he had given any advice to the party leaders not to undertake the Ekta Yatra, he referred to the "valid" suggestion given by Nitish Kumar in this regard.

He said the party should continue the fight for JPC probe into corruption cases with greater zeal in a focused manner and contended that the next two months would be crucial to determine which way things go.

Targeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said his "personal image" was saving him so far but his "ineffectiveness" was getting exposed.

"The Prime Minister is politically trapped and there seems to be no escape route," he said.

Maintaining that the deficiencies in governance could be exposed only by a JPC and not the PAC which only deals with accounts, the

BJP MP said Singh cannot choose the forum where to appear.

He said "February-March would be the deciding months" in the Indian politics and "which side we are heading and who will be leading us...anything can happen", he said.
