BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur visited a police station in Bhopal on Saturday night, demanding that a case should register against Congress MLA Govardhan Dangi for allegedly threatening to burn her after she called Nathuram Godse a patriot.
When asked if a case had registered, Additional Superintendent of Police Sanjay Sahu said, "Right now we're holding talks with Pragya Ji." Thakur was at Kamla Nehru police station here and officials were holding a discussion with her, a senior police official said.
Thakur, MP from Bhopal, kicked up a controversy with a remark about Godse, Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin, in the Lok Sabha on November 27. Later she apologized. Congress MLA from Biaora in Madhya Pradesh, Govardhan Dangi, had lashed out at Thakur for her statement about Godse, and said that “we not only burnt her effigy (during a protest) but if she comes here, we will burn her too”.
Dangi, too, later sought apology for his outburst.
