Patna, Dec 31: Actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha has ceased to be treated as a "VIP" at the airport in the city, an official said on Monday.
According to Rajendra Singh Lahauriya, Director of the Jay Prakash Narayan Airport here, Sinha had been granted exemption from frisking besides access to the tarmac with his own vehicle.
"The facilities were extended to Sinha for a period which ended in June this year. No orders have been received for extending the same", Lahauria told reporters here.
The airport director was replying to queries about the facilities being extended to the former Union minister who represents Patna Sahib in the Lok Sabha and has been, for some time, highly critical of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre and the current BJP leadership.
Speculations have been rife that the disgruntled BJP MP may fight the Lok Sabha polls next year on the ticket of some other party in the event of his party fielding some other candidate from Patna Sahib - a constituency which he is representing for the second consecutive term.
