Bhopal BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya has just shown that she can be sporty too, and has won some admirers with her basketball skills, including Congress leader Narendra Saluja.

In a video that has gone viral, the Bhopal MP is seen dribbling the basketball and scoring a perfect shot even as people around her are seen encouraging the MP and applauding her. According to media reports, the MP tried her hand at basketball at a stadium where she went to attend a programme on July 1.

Taking to Twitter, Congress leader Narendra Saluja said he had seen the Bhopal MP on a wheelchair till now, but was glad to see her hale and hearty and playing the basketball in Bhopal stadium. "So far, we knew that owing to some injury, she could not stand and walk properly," he said in a tweet in Hindi, adding, "May God keep her healthy always." 

The MP also posted the video of the BJP MP with the basketball.

In March, she was airlifted to Mumbai for treatment after she complained of breathing troubles. Pragya was admitted to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai.

She had earlier claimed that she has health issues because of the "torture" she suffered under the Congress regime. "I sustained several injuries due to torture by the Congress for nine years. Many injuries resurface due to this torture. There was formation of pus and swelling in my eyes and brain. I have blurred vision in the right eye and I can't see at all from the left one," she had said, in an apparent reference to her imprisonment in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.
