Even BJP Is Afraid Of Taking Nathuram Godse's Name

It seems the BJP has seen enough of firebrand Sadhvi-cum-politician Pragya Singh Thakur. The party did not include her in the list of star campaigner for the MP bypolls.  She is not a campaigner even in Bhind district, to which she belongs to.

Madhya Pradesh is going to have bypolls for 23 assembly seats. These MLAs have been the backers of Gwalior Maharaja Jyotiraditya Scindia. They have resigned in support of Scindia. Later Scindia resigned from the Congress and joined the Congress Party. With the resignation of these MLAs, the Kamal Nath government fell into a minority and consequently, the BJP, led by Shivraj Singh Chouhan, formed the government.

Interestingly, both Shivraj Chouhan and Scindia are the chief campaigners for the BJP. But, they have ensured that Sadhvi Pragna Thakur, who is known for her incendiary statements is kept out of the campaign. Pragya Thakur is one of the chief accused in the Malegaon bomb blast case. She has been jailed for years. But, she is also known for her comments against Mahatma Gandhi. She has openly praised Nathuram Godse, the murderer of Mahatma. The BJP clearly is uncomfortable with her comments and utterances. So, she has deliberately been kept out of the campaign.
