New delhi, May 28 (TIWN): Twenty-six days – that was how long the BJP took to announce its candidate from Bhopal, a seat considered to be the party’s stronghold since 1989.

It seems the BJP’s delay and ultimate choice of Pragya Singh Thakur as Lok Sabha candidate paid off, with Thakur winning from the Bhopal seat by a huge margin of 3,64,822 votes.

Ahead of elections, Thakur’s personal stories about attaining sainthood and being victimised in the name of ‘Hindu terror’ were widely circulated through pamphlets.

One such pamphlet, titled ‘Congress Ka Dushprachar, Sadhvi Ka Sach (Congress’ Misinformation, Sadhvi’s Truth)’states how ‘Sadhvi has never been convicted by any court till date and how till 2014 various investigating agencies have been working on the directions of the central government yet, were not able to prove anything.’
