Bhopal: BJP candidate from Bhopal, Pragya Singh Thakur on Sunday resumed campaigning for ongoing Lok Sabha elections after facing a 72-hour ban from Election Commission of India. ECI had banned her from campaigning for 72 hours for her remarks on Babri Masjid. Thakur blamed Congress for getting the prohibition imposed on her.
“They got a 72-hour ban imposed on me. There was no reason behind it and it was only because I spoke about patriotism which they did not like. They got afraid and had the ban imposed of 72 hours,” said Thakur. Meanwhile, the District Election Officer has sent Pragya over a complaint of her campaigning during the 3-day period when she was barred by the EC from campaigning.
