Shivraj Chouhan mentioned that the BJP had fielded Pragya Thakur with stout accountability.
Pragya Thakur, the 2008 Malegaon blast accused who has composed two notices with her controversial feedback after turning into the BJP’s candidate from Bhopal in the nationwide election, became described as “a patriot and an innocent daughter of India” by Shivraj Singh Chouhan, a senior party leader. “She’s going to capture Bhopal with a mighty majority,” he pronounced.

“The law became misused to charge her. She became subjected to inhuman suffering. One gets gooseflesh even thinking what she went thru,” Mr Chouhan told NDTV.
“My accusation is that a false ‘Hindu fear’ hype became whipped up and Digvijaya Singh became the mastermind.”

Digvijaya Singh is the Congress candidate from Bhopal, a seat that the BJP has received since 1989.
On condition that it is miles a exact seat for the party, why did the BJP self-discipline Pragya Thakur? “Any fashioned candidate would possibly possibly even like defeated Digvijaya Singh. But the party chose to purchase Pragya. I don’t tag thehungama(fuss) about it and the objection to her candidature,” he mentioned.
The Nationwide Investigation Agency dropped stringent fear charges against her citing lack of evidence, however a trial court in Mumbai refused to let her off charges beneath the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
With out an instantaneous respond to the charges, Mr Chouhan mentioned Pragya Thakur had the honest to contest, as a citizen, and the BJP had fielded her with stout accountability.
“Right here’s a nation where the harassment of Draupadi ended in the Mahabharat. Other folks will now not settle for what became done to Sadhvi Pragya.”
Requested about her controversial feedback – including that she had “cursed” Hemant Karkare, who investigated her and later died combating terrorists in the 26/11 Mumbai assault – Mr Chouhan mentioned: “She has been a social employee and this one thing has been pinned on her…”
He added that she can also converse for herself, did now not need any individual’s protection.
