Less than a month has passed since Pragya Thakur was airdropped into Bhopal and already her party is finding the lady too hot to handle, given her penchant from shooting off the mouth on matters that the BJP hopes will be kept low key even while addressing the Hindu votes in Bhopal as well as the rest of Madhya Pradesh and its neighboring states.

New Delhi | For the first time in his five year tenure, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed his first press conference today at their headquarters in New Delhi. Similar statements were made in favour Godse by controversial BJP leader from Karnataka, Ananth Kumar Hegde and Nalin Kumar Katil, also from Karnataka made remarks over Godse. Thakur, who is the main accused in the Malegaon blast that killed 40 people and injured 125, claimed that it was her curse that resulted in the death of Mumbai cop Hemant Karkare on the fateful night of November 26, 2008 during the Mumbai attacks. "You judge who is more cruel in this??"

Thakur issued an apology for her statement that Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse "was, is, and will remain a patriot", but it failed to douse the controversy, and the Hindu nationalist BJP said it had launched an inquiry into the incident.

Congress chief Gandhi had hit back by claiming the loan waiver had benefited several lakh farmers and even showed papers at rallies to prove that loans of ex-chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's brother Rohit and nephew Niranjan had been written off.

"The BJP does not associate with the comments of the three leaders".

He asserted that Thakur's candidature from Bhopal is the party's "satyagraha" against fake "saffron" terror case. "We have gained success in every elections", he said. The Congress party is responsible.

Amit Shah responded to the reporters who were asking questions to PM Modi, "I will answer your questions". If it has hurt anybody's feelings then I apologise. They would not just get rejuvenated but also gain a new understanding of the mind of the country.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also took aim at her rival over the narrative of nationalism and national security that the BJP has tried to make its primary focus in this general election, saying, "The PM talks about Pakistan while speaking on nationalism".

"Taking serious note of their remarks, the party has chose to send them to the disciplinary committee", Shah said.
