Bhopal | After suffering from embarrassing moments, the Bhartiya Janata Party has finally issued a gag order on MP Pragya Singh Thakur.
The BJP’s Madhya Pradesh head Rakesh Singh conveyed the warning to Thakur, 49, that the next verbal indiscretion would be followed by “serious” action against her, two party leaders said, as reported by HindustanTimes.
She has been told by the party to not speak in public.
Earlier this week, Pragya Thakur had again made the spotlight when she accused the Opposition parties of carrying out “black magic” and blamed them for the recent death of top BJP leaders Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj.
“A saint met me during Lok Sabha elections and told me that the Opposition might use black magic (marak shakti) against the BJP, and that it would harm the party and the leaders who are efficient, hardworking and manage the party affairs,” Thakur had said.
“I had forgotten what the saint had said in the crowd, but when I see today that party’s top leaders Shushma ji, Jaitley ji and Babulal Gaur ji are dying while undergoing pain, it occurs to me if it [the prophesy] is true,” she added.
“You may or may not believe it but the truth won’t change,” she said.
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.
