In a major development, Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur has joined the BJP party on Wednesday, following her meeting with the senior leadership in the party headquarters in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal.

With Bhopal going to polls in the third phase of the polls, Sadhvi Pragya's induction in the saffron party can prove to be a big boost in the elections, as speculations are high that she may contest against senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh from Bhopal Lok Sabha seats.

While speaking to reporters in the matter, she said that she may contest from Bhopal, without denying her candidature against Digvijaya Singh. 

"I am waiting for the official announcement, after which I will answer your questions. For me, the national cause will be foremost. I will definitely contest the elections and will also win the election," she said while interacting to media. 

She further added that she met the BJP leadership in Madhya Pradesh, asserting that the party will fight against those who conspire against the nation. 

"I came to meet all the leaders in the BJP office in Madhya Pradesh. Everybody is enthusiastic and positive that we will together fight against the elements who conspires against the nation. If the country is safe, we are safe and we are safe then work can be done."

On being asked about speculations over her contest against Congress' Digvijaya Singh, she said she will speak about it after the announcement at 4 pm on Wednesday evening. 

She was accused of plotting the September 2008 Malegaon blast in Maharashtra. It was due to her arrest and other accused persons in the case who allegedly had links with radical Hindu outfits, gave coinage to the controversial term "saffron" or "Hindu" terror. The case is still going on and she is out on bail.
