Bhopal: Pragya Singh Thakur, BJP’s nominee for Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency, just could not resist the temptation of throwing herself into arms of ‘senior sadhvi’ and Union minister Uma Bharti, when she called on her at her residence on Monday, to persuade the ‘sulking’ firebrand saffron leader to campaign for her.
The emotional hug between the two ‘sadhvis’ following by a kiss on Pragya’s forehead by Ms Bharti sunk all “differences” between them, eliciting a vow from the Union minister to campaign for ‘her sister Pragya’ in ‘lanes and by-lanes’ of Bhopal in the May 12 Lok Sabha elections.
“I will canvass for you in every mahallas (stre-ets) and lanes in Bhopal in the elections”, Uma was heard saying Pragya in an emotionally choked voice.
Mercurial Ms Bharti had earlier called Pragya a ‘greater sage’ than her, thus creating an impression of a ‘gulf’ between them. Ms Bharti’s statement had led to speculations that she might keep herself away from party’s election campaign in Bhopal.
Amid the rumours of their differences, Pra-gya suddenly dropped in Ms Bharti’s residence here to ‘seek her blessings’ for her victory in the polls.
Ms Bharti who is ten years older than Pragya touched her feet, then took her in her arms and treated her with “halwa”.
