Pragya Thakur Calls Media 'Dishonest'; Journalists Demand Apology
Bhopal MP Pragya Singh Thakur has again courted controversy with her remarks after she called media persons in the district "dishonest", drawing the ire of local journalists who demanded that she apologise and asked the BJP to expel her.
Thakur made these comments on Tuesday when local reporters sought her reaction on various issues in the state ruled by the Congress."I am speaking now, hear your praise. All media persons in Sehore are beimaan (dishonest)," Thakur said while laughing.
While the remarks were apparently made in a lighter vein, the media persons were not amused and a group of journalists later submitted a memorandum to the local administration demanding that she apologise for her remarks that have "angered" the fraternity.
