Because of this, I don’t have to take any medicines for corona and neither am I infected with corona and with god’s blessings, it will remain so as I am taking the right kind of medicines (gau mutra).”
“You are like amrit to me, I am consuming you. Please protect me because my life is for the nation,” she explained, as per the newspaper, that she consumes cow urine after offering prayers
As per the report, Thakur made the statement on Sunday while addressing a gathering at Sant Nagar, where she had come to donate 25 oxygen concentrators to Hedgewar hospital.
