The decision of the ruling BJP to field Sadhvi Pragya Thakur as a candidate against Congress leader Digvijaya Singh from Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency has been a significant strategic move by the BJP. However, right after the announcement of her candidature, the entire left-liberal cabal has been hounding Sadhvi Pragya.
Speaking to Times Now on Friday, Prime Minister Modi backed the decision to field Pragya Singh Thakur as the BJP candidate from Bhopal. Referring to it as a symbolic answer to all those who falsely labeled the rich Hindu civilization as “terrorist”, PM Modi asserted that “this symbol will prove costly for the Congress”.

Targetting the Congress party for its role in 1984 Sikh genocide after the death of the then prime minister Indira Gandhi, PM Modi said, “Her (Indira Gandhi’s) son (Rajiv Gandhi) had said that when a big tree falls, the earth shakes. Thereafter thousands of Sikhs were massacred in Delhi. Was it not the terrorism of certain people? Even after that, he (Rajiv Gandhi) was made the prime minister. The neutral media never asked any question with regard to that but is asking now,” PM Modi said.
“Those who were eyewitnesses and involved in the murder of the Sikhs were made Member of Parliament, cabinet ministers. One of them was recently made the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh (Kamal Nath), against whom there have been allegations. The people who were facing serious charges were never questioned. Those who have been convicted are being hugged even in jail,” he said and questioned the Congress, “Do they have any right to raise questions?”
While defending the fielding of Pragya Singh Thakur, PM Modi asked why no such questions are being asked when Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi who are contesting from Amethi and Rae Bareli constituencies, respectively, despite being on “bail”.
“In Amethi, they (Congress) have a candidate (Rahul Gandhi) who is on bail, in Rae Bareli, they have a candidate (Sonia Gandhi) who is on bail, but there is no debate on that. But if the candidate from Bhopal is on bail, there is so much of outcry. How can this go on?” said PM Modi.
While responding to the question on fielding of Pragya Thakur in the Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi replied, “One woman, that too a ‘Sadhvi’, was humiliated in such a manner, nobody raised the issue”.
“I have lived in Gujarat. I have understood Congress’s modus operandi. It is like a film script, they build a narrative out of it. Then they will pick something, then bring a villain to the story to use it for propaganda,” said PM Modi.
PM Modi went on to say, “Because of the same modus operandi of the Congress, all the encounters were presented as fake. Even in the Justice Loya case, he died a natural death but because of this kind of modus operandi, such a case was built as if he had been murdered. On EVM issue also, they used the same modus operandi,” he charged.
PM Modi also added that Congress party used the same modus operandi during the Samjhauta Express case. “Samjhauta Express verdict came. What happened? Without any evidence, you (Congress) called a rich civilization as old as 5000 years, which gave the message of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ as a terrorist. To give a reply to all such people, this (fielding of Pragya Thakur) is a symbol and this symbol will cost the Congress dearly,” the prime minister added.
