Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast, joined the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) at the party office. “I have formally joined the BJP; I will contest the elections and win; it won’t be difficult for me,” she said. She reportedly met senior BJP leaders Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Ramlal. She will contest from Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal, where former CM Digvijaya Singh is the Congress candidate, BJP leader said.
Sadhvi Pragya had been associated with Akhil Bhartiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and 'Durga Vahini' or women's wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). She is known for rabble-rousing speeches.
