The controversial candidate of BJP and self proclaimed god woman Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who happens to be BJP MP Candidate in the constituency of Bhopal, has said that Nathuram Godse who killed Mahatma Gandhi was a patriot. Before two days during his election campaign in Aravakurichi Ulaga nayagan and Makkal needhi Maiam leader kamal hassan had called Nadhuram Godse as a Hindu terrorist, and independent india's first terrorist.
Now Sadhvi has said Godse was, is and will always be a patriotic person. Following this statement, there is widespread criticism from within her own party for Sadhvi's controversial remarks. BJP's spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said that Sadhvi must be apologizing for her insensitive statements and said it's her personal opinion and not BJP view.
Among opposition leaders, Asaduddin Owaisi condemned her. He quoted how Narendra modi supported Pragya’s candidature and said that this is BJP stance on Independent india’s first terrorist and soon this government might recommend Bharat Ratna for sri Godse said Asaduddin.
