Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur has been facing backlash on her remarks on ATS chief Hemant Karkare and that she was “proud” of her participation in the demolition of the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya in 1992. Now, 100 people from Pune will soon be on their way to Bhopal to campaign against Pragya Thakur.
According to Mid-Day, on Wednesday, Mulnivasi Muslim Manch President Anjum Inamdar, former Justice BG Kolse Patil, former IPS officer Suresh Khopade and others came together to form a team of the people who will head to Bhopal next week, along with those injured and kin of those who died in the Malegaon blast.
Suresh Khopade told the Mid-Day, “We live in a democracy and want our representative to respect our parliament and work for society. But it seems that Pragya is an anti-social element. We will campaign against her and the BJP for shielding and encouraging such destructive people to breach the peace in society.” Retired Bombay High Court Judge B G Kolse Patil will also be heading to Bhopal to campaign against Thakur. Adding to which he said, “There is sufficient evidence against her. We will be reading out the evidence before the voters.”
