First time BJP parliamentarian from Madhya Pradesh, Pragya Singh Thakur told party workers that she “wasn’t elected to get drains and toilets cleaned.”
Her statement directly goes against the Prime Minister Modi’s pet project “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” which means clean India program.
While speaking to BJP workers at Sehore Thakur said, “We haven’t been elected to clean your drains, ok? We haven’t been elected to clean your toilets, please understand. The work for which I have been elected, I will do honestly, I have said that before and I will say it again.”
The 49 year old’s comment portrays her in an arrogant fashion after her party workers complained to her about the lack of hygiene and cleanliness in the area.
This is not the first time that the BJP parliamentarian has pushed herself into trouble. During the election campaigning the saffron clad politician who is an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blasts, described Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a patriot.
Her comments were condemned by Prime Minister Modi, he said he would “never be able to forgive” the lawmaker.
