The central leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has banned its party MP Sadhvi Pragya for her controversial remark on the use of evil power by the Opposition to harm party leaders.
As per sources, Sadhvi Pragya has been asked not to speak in public and refrain from making such controversial statements.
Raising strong objection to Sadhvi Pragya’s statement on the death of BJP leaders, the party high command has asked the state leadership to inform the top leadership in case the Bhopal MP makes another controversial statement, sources said.
BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur had earlier accused the Opposition of using 'marak shakti' (killing power) to harm BJP leaders. She had said 'evil power' was behind the recent deaths of former Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj.
"While I was contesting (Lok Sabha) elections, a Maharaj Ji told me that bad times are upon us and Opposition is up to something using some 'marak shakti' against BJP. I later forgot what he said but now when I see our top leaders leaving us one by one, I am forced to think, wasn't Maharaj ji right?" the BJP MP had said.
Sadhvi Pragya had made the remark as she addressed a condolence meeting at the state BJP office to pay tributes to Jaitley and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Babulal Gaur.
Pragya said she forgot what the Maharaj told her as she was in a crowd and moving. "But now, when I see our top leaders Sushma ji, Babulal ji, Jaitley ji leaving us one by one after undergoing pain, I am forced to think, wasn't it (what Maharaj said) right? It is true that our leadership is leaving us untimely," the BJP MP had said.
