Pravin Mahajan’s widow knocks at Parivar door

Three days after her husband died, Sarangi Mahajan, the widow of Pravin Mahajan, spoke of her ambition to join politics and sought blessings of the Sangh Parivar. She said she will travel to meet RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in her native Nagpur to chalk out plans, possibly in a bid to join the very BJP that her brothers-in-law, Pramod Mahajan and Gopinath Munde, have led from the front. Pravin, who died at a Thane hospital, was convicted for killing his brother, Pramod. Apart from the fact that her father and brothers have had a long association with the RSS, Sarangi — during her college days — was an active member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the BJP’s students’ wing. That contact has, obviously, not diminished over the years. As she mourns her husband, the 43-year-old is coming to grips with life as a single woman, albeit with the strong support of her immediate family. Surrounded by twin children Kapil and Vrushali, whose final college exams are coming up in April, brother Prasad Pulliwar and her mother, Sarangi met TOI at her home in Thane’s Jinja Apartment on Saturday. In one part of the house, Pravin’s ashes lay awaiting immersion. Recalling their conversations with Pravin during his 10 days of furlough last December, young Kapil says his father never complained about the conditions in jail. “Little did we know he was not receiving his medication for diabetes and blood pressure,” he rues. The family says it has no objection to the secret portions of Pravin’s testimony coming out in the open. “It was not we who asked for an in-camera trial. The prosecution did so,” Sarangi says.
