Speaking to reporters, Pragya Thakur, accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, called Godse, a deshbhakt.
“Nathuram Godse was a deshbhakt, is a deshbhakt, and will remain a deshbhakt. Instead, people calling him a terrorist should look inside, such people will receive a proper response in these elections,” she said.
Condemning the Godse remarks of Pragya, Uttar Pradesh media in charge Lokendra Parashar said the party disagrees with her statement.
Parashar said the party would summon her and seek clarification for her remarks, calling her statement ‘ objectionable. ‘ He added that the world knows that Godse killed the nation’s father Mahatma Gandhi and therefore Sadhvi has to apologize for her remarks.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) distanced from the latest remarks made by the party leader Sadhvia Pragya Singh Thakhur about Nathuramm Godse, the killer of Mahatma Gandhi.
The party strongly disagrees with her statement, GVL Narasimha Rao, said, and will request her to apologize publicly for this.
