BJP Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, who is well known for his unique methods of protest and witty comebacks on social media, has put up posters of Sadhvi Pragya Thakur in various places of Delhi that are bound to hurt the Congress.
The BJP had recently declared that Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur will be the party’s candidate against Digvijay Singh in the Lok Sabha elections for the Bhopal seat. The BJP’s announcement had burned quite a few hearts in the self-proclaimed ‘secular liberal’ brigade.
Sadhvi Pragya was incarcerated by the UPA government over dubious allegations and charges of terrorism that eventually turned out to be baseless. Eight long and torturous years after her arrest, Sadhi Pragya was granted bail in 2017. She was later given a clean chit by the NIA. She was arrested on allegations of involvement in the Malegaon blasts case to peddle the narrative of Hindu terror concocted by the then UPA government.
Pragya’s candidature from the Bhopal seat against Congress’ Digvijay Singh is being seen by many as a kind of poetic justice, for Digvijay Singh was one of the principal forces behind the false narrative of Hindu-terror. Pragya’s account of inhuman torture, insult, and agony in the hands of the establishment to peddle a fake narrative have been crucial in exposing the Congress’ real face.
Bagga’s posters depict an old image of Sadhvi Pragya where a battered, visibly scared, weak, tired and shaken Pragya is seen waiting for medical attention. Pragya was diagnosed with cancer and spinal injuries during her long incarceration. Bagga’s posters have the words “Ab Hoga NYAY”, the much talked about Congress slogan about their dubious basic minimum income scheme.
The use of the slogan along with Sadhvi Pragya’s image sends a strong message, that not only justice is waiting to be served to the peddlers of fake Hindu-terror bogey, but the woman they had tortured for 8 long years has risen to challenge her oppressor in a democratic battle.
Bagga’s posters have taken social media by storm.

Twitter users also pointed out that just as PM Modi had turned the ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ campaign on its head and launched the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ slogan that had shattered the Congress attempts to malign him, Bagga’s posters has managed to take the Congress’ NYAY scheme campaign and turned it into a boomerang, reminding the party of its own long history of sins and injustice.
Just like Modi ji turned Chowkidaar chor hai to Main bhi Chowkidaar movement..the genius of @TajinderBagga may now prevent Congress from using the slogan Ab Hoga Nyay. This is a masterstroke. #LokSabhaElections2019 pic.twitter.com/IBD2o4uj9j

As per latest updates, the news of the posters has already been picked up by many major media outlets and there are ongoing discussions on how it is going to affect the political war between BJP and Congress.
If you believe in something, be unapologetic and fierce. Stand by it and be proud of it. This is what @TajinderBagga has done with this poster of Sadhvi Pragya. Bravo and well done.

Twitter users were also seen praising the BJP’s unapologetic stand for Sadhvi Pragya and the resolve to shatter the false narrative of Hindu terror. BJP President Amit Shah has stated in many of his rallies that the Congress and its ecosystem had tried very hard to paint Hindus as terrorists and they had miserably failed at it. The BJP’s decision to field Sadhvi Pragya against Digvijay Singh is a bold and significant assertion of their ideological stand.
