The poll body has sought a "factual report" from the chief electoral officer of Madhya Pradesh by Friday on her statement. Pragya has since apologised for her comment and withdrew the statement.
"It was my personal opinion remark. My intention was not to hurt anyone’s sentiments. If I’ve hurt anyone I do apologise. What Gandhi Ji has done for the country cannot be forgotten. My statement has been twisted by the media," Pragya, an accused in the Malegaon blast case, said.
