Narendra Modi should apologise over Pragya’s remark on Godse: Digvijaya

Vastavam web: Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh Thursday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah should apologise over Pragya Singh Thakur’s remark that Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse was a “patriot”.

Malegaon blast accused Pragya Singh Thakur, who is contesting the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat against Digvijaya Singh, Thursday kicked up a row as she called Godse a “patriot”.

Talking to a news channel at Agar Malwa in Madhya Pradesh, she said, “Nathuram Godse was a ‘deshbhakt’ (patriot), he is and will remain a ‘deshbhakt’…”

Condemning her statement, Digvijaya Singh said praising Godse was not patriotism, but an “anti-national” act.
