Aug 26 : As some senior leaders of the saffron party passed away, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Pragya Thakur has accused the Opposition of resorting to sorcery on BJP leaders.
She said, “During my election campaign, a maharaj ji (religious person) had told me that the Opposition is resorting to ‘marak shakti’ i.e.sorcery on your party and its leaders. He said it is a very bad time and asked me to be cautious.”
She made this bizarre claim as she was addressing a condolence meeting to pay tribute to senior party leaders Arun Jaitley.
“I had forgotten about this thing after that. But now, when I see that leaders of our party are leaving us one by one, I recall what the Maharaj ji had said. ” Pragya added.
After the meeting, the media tried to elicit some more comments but she refused to elaborate.
Recently, Jaitley passed away in New Delhi, a former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Gaur, former minister Sushma Swaraj, former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had lost their lives.
