Nationalistic luminaries of BJP, have guts to spell out your stand on Pragya Thakur statement: Priyanka

Nationalistic luminaries of BJP, have guts to spell out your stand on Pragya Thakur statement: Priyanka

New Delhi, May 16 (UNI) In a sharp attack on the BJP on the statement by its Bhopal candidate Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, describing Nathuram Godse as a ‘True Nationalist’, Congress leader and AICC general secretary for Uttar Pradesh east Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday said the nationalistic luminaries of the saffron party should spell out their stand on the statement.



In a post on social media, Priyanka, targeting the top leadership of the BJP, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, said that merely distancing themselves from Pragya’s statement was not enough but that the ‘Nationalistic‘ leaders of the saffron party should also spell out their stand on the issue.



’’Bapu ka Hatyara Deshbhakt? Hey ram (The assassin of the father of the nation a nationalist? Oh My God) Distancing yourself from your candidate is not enough. Nationalistic luminaries of the BJP, have the guts to spell out your stand,’’she said in a strongly-worded tweet.



Bharatiya Janata Party candidate from Bhopal Pragya Singh Thakur on Thursday called Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse a patriot.



“People calling him a terrorist should instead look within. Such people will be given a befitting reply in this election. Nathuram Godse was a deshbhakt [patriot], he is and will remain a deshbhakt,” she said.



After the controversy generated by the remark, the saffron party, however, distanced itself from Pragya’s statement.
