The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) isn’t short of motormouths and Sadhvi Pragya Thakur is one of them. The Bhopal MP has now given another controversial statement. Thakur has said she is not meant to clean ‘Naali’ (sewerage).
Speaking in Madya Pradesh’s Sehore, the Sadhvi said that she was in no way meant to clean people’s toilets.
“Hum naali saaf karwane ke liye nahi bane hain. Hum aapka shauchalaya saaf karne ke liye bilkul nahi banaye gaye hain. Hum jis kaam ke liye banaye gaye hain, vo kaam hum imaandaari se karenge,” she said.

Sadhvi Pragya Thakur courted controversy ever since the BJP fielded her from the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat. She made controversial statements ranging from the 26/11 martyr Hemant Karkare to Ram Mandir to Nathuram Godse. Even when she took oath in the Parliament, she generated quite a controversy.
Thakur defeated Congress stalwart and two-time chief minister Digvijay Singh from the Bhopal Lok Sabha segment. She is an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blasts which had killed 6 people.
