Sakshi Maharaj softens stance, praises Modi

After being quoted as saying he can make or break the government, controversial BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj on Wednesday did an about turn and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his politics of “inclusive development” and described him as a “divine power”.

The five-time MP, a Hindutva voice, who has been served a show cause notice for his controversial statements, had in a media interview said that Modi should concentrate on the economy on the one hand and the Hindu agenda on the other. He had also reportedly said, “I can make or break the government.”

On Wednesday, he sang a different tune when he said the construction of Ram temple could wait because the government was focused on development. Maharaj, however, insisted that everybody, including Modi, wants a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
