Pragya Thakur to clarify on Godse remark in Lok Sabha at noon

Amid an uproar over her controversial remarks on Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse, BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Thakur on Friday met party president JP Nadda in the Parliament House here.

In the meeting with JP Nadda and BJP General Secretary Bhupendra Yadav, Pragya Thakur reportedly clarified her comment. Pragya Thakur is also likely to make a statement in the Lok Sabha today, sources have told India Today.

As per the sources, Sadhvi Pragya will maintain that she used the word "deshbhakt" for Udham Singh, a noted revolutionary freedom fighter, and not Nathuram Godse as alleged.

BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya also issued a clarification alleging that she was a victim of concerted propaganda against her.
