New Delhi, New24 Bureau, July 22: Pragya Thakur has again earned the wrath of the party as she says that she has not become an MP to clean toilets; the verbose MP is now summoned by Nadda.
Pragya Thakur is known on an earlier occasion too for many foot-in-mouth moments.
BJP's Bhopal MP Pragya Thakur has arrived at the party office in Delhi to meet Working President JP Nadda and BJP General Secretary (organization) BL Santhosh ostensibly after her remarks on cleaning toilets.
Thakur kicked up a controversy on Sunday saying she has not become a lawmaker to clean drains or toilets.
Addressing a meeting of BJP workers in Madhya Pradesh, Thakur, an accused in the 2008 Malegaon bomb blast case who is currently out on bail, said the job of an MP is to work with MLAs, corporators and public representatives to ensure development.
"So keep this in mind...We are not here for cleaning a drain. Is it clear? We are absolutely not (here) for cleaning your toilets. The work which we are supposed to do and elected for, we will do it honestly. This we had said in the past, saying it today and stick to it in future as well," said Thakur, who won her maiden election from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat by defeating Congress leader Digvijay Singh.
Owaisi lapped this apt opportunity of hurling attacks:
Asaduddin Owaisi on BJP MP Pragya Thakur's remark 'not elected to clean toilets': Not at all surprised, neither I'm shocked by this obnoxious statement; she says this because that is her thought process. The MP believes in the caste & class discrimination happening in India.
Asaduddin Owaisi further added, "She (Pragya Thakur, BJP MP from Bhopal) also clearly tells that the kind of work the caste has defined, that should continue. It is very unfortunate. Also, she has openly opposed the PM's program."
