Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slams Pragya Thakur's Godse Comment

The Congress's Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur’s now expunged remarks on Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse reflect the "heart of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and BJP" and that he does not want to "waste time" by demanding action against her.

"Terrorist Pragya calls terrorist Godse, a patriot. A sad day, in the history of India's Parliament," Rahul Gandhi tweeted today.

"What she is saying -- that is the heart of the RSS and BJP. It cannot be hidden. I do not need to waste my time demanding action against that woman," Mr Gandhi told reporters.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi too condemned the controversial BJP leader's remarks. "Our party has said everything that needs to be said on the issue... Her comments are shocking," Mrs Gandhi said.
