If Sadhvi Pragya is fit to contest election, she is fit to be in jail: Omar Abdullah

If Sadhvi Pragya is fit to contest election, she is fit to be in jail: Omar Abdullah

NC vice-president Omar Abdullah said on Thursday that if Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the BJP candidate from Bhopal and an accused in the Malegaon blast case, is fit to contest election, she is fit to be in jail.

BJP on Wednesday pitted Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur against Congress heavyweight and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijay Singh from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat.

Hindustan Times quoted Omar Abdullah as saying: “They know that they will not get votes with ‘mandir-masjid’ (Ayodhya issue), so they gave the mandate from Bhopal to a person who is an accused in a terror case and is out on bail citing poor health.”

“I hope the court which gave her bail cancels it as if she is fit enough to contest (election), she is fit to be in jail,” he added.
