Now, as Pragya Thakur finds her name missing in the first list of the BJP, she says that her earlier statements might not have pleased PM Modi.

‘I am not seeking a ticket,’ says MP

Pragya Thakur further clarified that she did not seek a party ticket earlier, nor is she seeking one now.

Recently, the BJP announced its first list of 195 candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

PM Modi is the most high-profile name featured in the first list of the BJP for Parliamentary elections. He will seek re-election to the Lok Sabha from the Varanasi constituency in Uttar Pradesh, a seat he has been contesting since 2014.

The list includes two former chief ministers and the Lok Sabha Speaker among the 195 nominees.
