The BJP has fielded senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat in Madhya Pradesh.
Amarinder Singh accused Thakur’s comments as sick and repulsive and accused him of insulting a convicted police officer and dragged the current discourse on nationalism to a new lower level.
Karkare, who led the anti-terrorism squad in Mumbai, had died in the 2008 terror attacks. Two other senior police officers were also killed while fighting terrorists during the attacks.
That woman cannot be sensible Singh said in a statement that no person can think of such a person or talk about such a person about his sensible person and also about a police officer who sacrificed his life for the country.

His remarks have exposed the true colors of BJP, who is claiming the Nationalist agenda as its main constituency and presenting himself as the only protector of the nation, Singh said.
The fact is that two BJP leaders were present in the incident where they had commented and they did not try to stop or modify it in any way, indicating that the saffron agenda of the BJP is to address every other agenda, including patriotism and nationalism. Overrides.
Singh rejected the BJP’s later attempt to separate himself from the controversial remarks.
The BJP removed himself from the comments, calling him “personal”, but the late IPS officer’s colleagues sacked him for insulting him.
Every BJP member, especially a candidate, resonates the thinking and philosophy of the party only. Singh said that the BJP cannot be withdrawn from its responsibility in this matter.
He alleged that after the demolition of all the important democratic institutions of the country during the five years of its total “misrule”, the BJP is now trying to destroy the very fabric of civilization by the division of such shambles and divisive elements.
They have made this election a criminal by bringing criminals into the contest. If the BJP does not support the Sadhvi’s view, then why is he still with the party, he asked.
What kind of nationalism is this? Surely our freedom-fighters did not sacrifice for their lives, they appealed to people to vote for these forces of hatred and division to save the country’s constitutional ethos and character.
We can not let these people destroy our country. We can not let them go away with their destructive agenda, Singh said. They vowed to do everything in their power to fight their impotent mansions. Thakur is accused of the 2008 Malegaon blast case, which led by Karkare.
He said that Karkare did an “anti-national” act to prove it false in the Malegaon blast case and to keep it behind the bars of no evidence. It was treason. It was against religion. ”
“He persecuted me and harshly abused me, which was unbearable, I told him that he would be destroyed. After one month, ‘Sutak’ (the ritual celebrated after the death of the family member) was going to start. ” A month later, he was shot by the terrorists and the inauspicious time was over, “she said.
Out on bail, Thakur has been freed from charges by a court in the case of 2008 under the stringent Maharashtra Control Act (MCOCA), but is still facing litigation under other criminal provisions including the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
