EC’s third notice to Pragya Singh Thakur, this time for calling Digvijaya Singh a terrorist

Bhopal: Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur was served another notice by the Election Commission of India (ECI) for calling her rival Digvijaya Singh a “terrorist” while addressing a public gathering in Sehore on Thursday.

Pragya was served two notices earlier, the first for claiming ATS chief Hemant Karkare had died because she had cursed him and another for claiming she pulled down Babri Masjid on disputed site in Ayodhya in 1992.

During a poll campaign in Madhya Pradesh’s Sehore on Thursday, the right-wing activist had reportedly said that a sanyasi was required to eliminate a “terrorist”.

The poll body has sought a comprehensive report from the Collector on her statements.

Pragya has been in the eye of a storm after BJP fielded her from Bhopal seat in the Lok Sabha election against Congress heavyweight and former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh.
