Nitish Kumar says BJP must consider expelling Sadhvi Pragya Thakur for Godse remark.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar says that BJP must consider expulsion of Pragya Singh Thakur from the party for describing Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as “patriot”.
He also said that “it is an internal matter of the BJP but so far as country or ideology is concerned, there is no question of tolerating such things”
“This is highly condemnable. We will not tolerate all these things. Bapu is the father of the nation and people will not like if anyone talks about Godse in this manner, ” the Chief Minister said to the press reporters after casting his vote at a polling station near Raj Bhavan in Patna.
The JD(U) Cheif also said to reporters that he never compromised over 3cs – “crime, corruption and communalism”.
The BJP candidate’s remarks were also condemned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who said that he will never forgive Thakur for insulting Gandhi by hailing his assassin. Thakur has been served a notice by the party disciplinary committee to come up with an explanation for the remarks.
