Sadhvi Pragya had hailed MK Gandhi’s murderer Nathuram Godse as a ‘patriot’ recently in a statement inside the parliament.
BJP working president JP Nadda has stated that the BJP does not support her statement and condemns it.
The Bhopal MP has also been in the news earlier for similar comments. During the 2019 general elections, she had given similar statements. PM Modi had stated that even though she had apologised for her statements, he can never totally forgive her.
Sadhvi Pragya was recently added to the consultative committee of defence. Her nomination had created an uproar among opposition parties.
PM Modi and BJP President Amit Shah have maintained that the BJP’s intentions behind giving an MP ticket to Sadhvi Pragya against Congress’ Digvijay Singh was a symbolic answer to the false ‘Hindu Terror’ narrative that the Congress had propagated with the help of Digvijay and others, by accusing Sadhvi Pragya and Lt Col Shrikant Purohit in the Malegaon blasts.
