BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur responded to the party’s decision not to field her in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, suggesting Prime Minister Narendra Modi might have been displeased with her past remarks. She claimed Modi had told earlier that she “will not be forgiven” for her choice of words.

In an interview, she addressed the BJP’s decision, stating she hadn’t sought a ticket before and isn’t doing so now. She acknowledged that certain past statements may have displeased PM Modi, who indicated she “won’t be forgiven,” despite her prior apology.

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur’s name was notably absent from the BJP’s initial list of 195 candidates for the upcoming general elections, released on Saturday.

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the sitting MP and an accused in the Malegaon blast case, has been replaced by Alok Sharma, a former Mayor. Thakur has accepted the party’s decision, urging the focus not to be on why the ticket was denied. It’s worth mentioning that PM Modi had expressed dissatisfaction with her earlier remarks against Mahatma Gandhi in 2019.

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur sparked controversy in May 2019 by praising Nathuram Godse as a “true patriot.” Prime Minister Modi publicly stated he would never forgive her for calling Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin a patriot, emphasizing his deep disapproval of her remarks.

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur defended her statements, claiming she speaks the truth, but the media portrays it as controversial, unnecessarily hyping the issues. She asserted she has no intention of leaving the BJP and will continue to serve wherever the party assigns her, fulfilling any responsibilities given to her.
