A sad day, in the history of
When the reporters asked Rahul Gandhi about Pragya Thakur's comment at the winter session of Lok Sabha, he said, "That's the heart of the BJP and RSS. It's their soul and however much they worship Gandhi it's in their heart what the lady has said. I don't want to waste my time demanding action against her."
In a massive development, just after Rahul Gandhi's comment, BJP leader Pragya Thakur was sacked from the Parliamentary Defence Panel. The news was made official by the Working President of the BJP, J P Nadda. Nadda further stated that the BJP condemns her remarks and she will not be allowed to attend meetings of BJP parliamentary party during the session.
BJP member Pragya Thakur referred to Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse as a "deshbhakt" during a debate in Lok Sabha, triggering a protest by opposition members. When DMK member A Raja cited a statement of Godse on why he killed Mahatma Gandhi during a discussion on the Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill, Thakur interrupted and said, "You cannot give an example of a deshbhakt". Raja said that Godse himself admitted that he had nursed a grudge against Gandhi for 32 years before finally deciding to assassinate him.
