Lok Sabha Elections-2024: What Pragya Thakur Said In Response to Ticket Denial from Bhopal

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has chosen not to field Pragya Singh Thakur, the current Lok Sabha MP from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections-2024. Instead, the party has nominated former Bhopal Mayor Alok Sharma for the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat.

When questioned by journalists about the reason behind her ticket being revoked, Pragya Singh Thakur addressed concerns about her controversial statements, particularly regarding Godse. She denied making any controversial statements, asserting that she had spoken the truth. Pragya defended her stance and maintained that it is crucial to communicate the truth in politics, even if it is deemed controversial.


I hold no ill will towards the PM: Pragya

Regarding the specific comments on Godse, Thakur acknowledged that Prime Minister Modi had expressed his displeasure, stating that he would not forgive her from his heart. Thakur clarified that she had already apologized for any unintended offense caused by her words. She said that her intention was not to hurt anyone and that she holds no ill will towards the Prime Minister.

Thakur also acknowledged the party's organizational decision to deny her the ticket. She emphasized the supremacy of the organization's decisions. She extended her blessings and best wishes to Alok Sharma, the chosen candidate for the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat.

I had not sought a ticket even in 2019 elections: Pragya

In reflection on her past electoral journey, Thakur reminded that she had not sought a ticket even in the 2019 elections; it was the party's decision to field her. In 2019, she secured victory in Bhopal by defeating Digvijaya Singh with a huge margin of over three lakh votes.

It's worth noting that Pragya Thakur's previous victory in 2019 had been a closely watched contest, pitting her against Digvijaya Singh, a two-time Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh from the Congress party. The 2019 elections saw the BJP winning 28 out of 29 Lok Sabha seats in Madhya Pradesh.

As the political landscape evolves, the decision to omit Pragya Thakur from the candidate list has stirred discussions, particularly in light of her controversial statements and the party's strategic choices.
