New Delhi: BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur here on Monday said the Opposition is using a ‘marak shakti’ (killing power) to harm BJP leaders, adding the ‘evil power’ was behind the recent deaths of former Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj.

BJP veteran Arun Jaitley died on August 24 and Swaraj on August 6.

Objecting the BJP MP’s remarks, the Madhya Pradesh Congress said she has lost her mental balance and advised her to undergo treatment in a mental asylum.

“While I was contesting (Lok Sabha) elections, a Maharaj ji told me that bad times are upon us and Opposition is up to something using some ‘marak shakti’ against BJP. I later forgot what he said but now when I see our top leaders leaving us one by one, I am forced to think, wasn’t Maharaj ji right?” the BJP MP said.

She was addressing a condolence meeting at the state BJP office to pay tributes to Jaitley and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Babulal Gaur.

The latter died on August 20. Notably, Sadhvi Pragya, who successfully contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Bhopal, had been in a number of controversial statements in the past, some of which have even forced her to issue apologies.

She was even issued a show-cause notice by the BJP in the run-up to the elections for voicing support for Nathuram Godse and calling him a patriot. Nathuram Godse had assassinated Mahatma Gandhi.

Before this, Sadhvi Pragya claimed that the then Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare was killed in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks due to her ‘curse’.
