Pragya Singh Thakur demands FIR against Congress MLA who had threatened to burn her over remarks about Nathuram Godse
BJP leader and Bhopal MP Pragya Singh Thakur on Saturday (December 7) staged a dharna outside a police station in Bhopal demanding the registration on an FIR against a Congress MLA who allegedly threatened to "burn" for calling Nathuram Godse, the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, a 'patriot'.
On November 27, Sadhvi Pragya had sparked a huge political row by saying in Lok Sabha that Godse was a 'patriot'. Pragya was strongly condemned by her party colleagues and opposition leaders and she apologised on November 28.
Meanwhile, Congress MLA from Biaora in Madhya Pradesh, Govardhan Dangi, slammed Thakur by saying that "we will not only burnt her effigy, but if she comes here, we will burn her too". Dangi later issued an apology for his controversial statement.
