“While should I regret over the demolition of the structure? I am proud of it. A few unwanted elements were trying to enter Lord Ram’s temple, we had to remove them,” Pragya Thakur said.
In fresh trouble for Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, the Bhopal District Election Officer on Sunday issued a notice to the BJP candidate from Bhopal and sought an explanation over her remarks that she had supported the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, news agency ANI reported.
The poll officer’s move came after Thakur, while speaking to news channel Aaj Tak (Video below: 00:41 – 01:32) on Saturday, said she has no regrets over the demolition of the Babri Masjid structure in Ayodhya and that she was “proud” of her decision.
“Why should I regret over the demolition of the structure? I am proud of it. A few unwanted elements were trying to enter Lord Ram’s temple, we had to remove them. I am proud of it. This has awakened the self-respect of our country. We will construct the Ram temple,” she told the channel.
Following this, the Bhopal poll officer issued the BJP leader a notice and sought an explanation within 24 hours.
