After making a series of gaffes through her verbal volleys, BJP finally has decided to censor its most controversial Bhopal MP Pragya Thakur.
BJP’s Madhya Pradesh chief Rakesh Singh warned Thakur of serious repercussion from the party if go for any controversial statements.
In her latest public remarks, Thakur said at a condolence meeting in Bhopal on Monday that “black magic” practised by the Opposition may have been behind deaths of top leaders of the BJP, including former Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj, and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Babulal Gaur.
When she made a statement during the Lok Sabha election that Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse was a “true patriot”, Modi said that he could never forgive her from his heart for that remark.
Playing down the gag order against Pragya Thakur, former BJP minister and senior Madhya Pradesh leader Hitesh Bajpai said: “We know that some controversies have happened due to her opinions at various platforms. It may be due to misunderstanding of her statements by the media--she is a non-political type of political person,’’ he said.
