Former minister Narottam Mishra and president of the party’s district unit Sumit Choudhary are also vying for tickets from Bhopal. According sources, the party leaders have agreed to field Sharma from the state capital. Pragya hogged the limelight for his controversial statements during her tenure as MP. This is the reason why the party has decided not to give her a ticket this time.

During the election, she called assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, Nathuram Godse, as nationalist. Reacting to her statement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he would never pardon her from the bottom of his heart. The BJP may deny tickets to a few MPs, and fresh candidates may be fielded in place of the old ones.
