The BJP leader was the source of several controversies during the polling of Lok Sabha elections. In the last week she courted controversy by calling Mahatma Gandhi`s assassin Nathuram Godse a “patriot”. Earlier, she had claimed that the then Maharashtra ATS chief, Hemant Karkare, was killed in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks due to her “curse”.
Stating that the comments were against the party`s ideology, Amit Shah asked the party`s disciplinary committee to submit a report on the issue in 10 days for further action.
Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he will never forgive Thakur for insulting Mahatma Gandhi.
Following some of Sadhavi Pragya Thakur`s controversial statements, the Election Commission had imposed a 72-hour ban on her from campaigning in the Lok Sabha polls.
