Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blast case, won on BJP ticket in 2019 elections. She was in news this week over controversial remarks about Nathuram Godse in the Lok Sabha. Congress workers led by district unit chief Kailash Sharma staged a demonstration outside her residence in Mata Mandir area of the city.

Mishra alleged that out of Rs 32,700-crore dues under various central schemes, the Centre has given only Rs 9,000- crore to Madhya Pradesh. The Centre has not released its share of the Crop Insurance Scheme, he alleged.
