In this techno savvy generation ,which totally believes in the saying that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’. People still believe in evil powers .Same thinking is going in Bharatiya Janata Party MP Pragya Singh Thakur’s mind who accused the opposition for deaths of great and renowned leaders saying that they are using supernatural powers for killing our leaders.
She is MP from Bhopal , claimed that the Opposition was using “marak shakti” (power to kill), to harm the saffron party leaders, according to the reports of ANI. She added that “evil power” was behind the recent deaths of several BJP leaders.
Former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley expired on August 24, former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj died on August 6, and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Babulal Gaur died on August 21. Pragya Singh Thakur made the comments at a condolence meeting at the state BJP office to pay tributes to Jaitley and Gaur.
“When I was contesting the Lok Sabha polls, a Maharaj-ji told me to strengthen my saadhana [prayers] as bad times are upon us and Opposition is up to something using some ‘marak shakti’ against BJP,” Thakur claimed. “I forgot what he said, but now when I see our top leaders Sushma ji, Babulal ji, Jaitley ji leaving us one by one after undergoing pain, I am forced to think, wasn’t Maharaj ji right?”
“Our leaders are leaving us before time,” she said. “You can believe it or choose not to. But the truth can’t change.”
BJP’s National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and Leader of Opposition in MP Vidhan Sabha Gopal Bhargava also witnessed the statements, and told NDTV “Everyone has his or her own viewpoint, I can talk about myself and not anyone else.”
Madhya Pradesh Cabinet minister and senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s son Jaivardhan Singh criticised her comments and called them unfortunate. “We knew Arun Jaitley ji, Sushma Swaraj ji, Babulal Gaur sahab– all very senior leaders, very well respected, and to blame that Opposition is doing some black magic is very unfortunate,” he said, adding that Thakur should take back her words.
