Hyderabad, May 16 (IANS) Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Working President K.T. Rama Rao on Thursday dubbed as “reprehensible and abominable” BJP Bhopal candidate Pragya Singh Thakur’s description of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a “patriot”.
“No matter what politics you affiliate with, what ideology you espouse; there are some lines that you just don’t cross. Pragya Singh Thakur’s statement is absolutely reprehensible and abominable,” Rama Rao tweeted
The TRS leader, who is son of Chief Minister and TRS President K. Chandrashekhar Rao, said she should apologize unconditionally for vilifying the father of nation.
All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted that the BJP was standing by independent India’s first terrorist.
“Remember, Narendra Modi has defended and endorsed Pragya’s candidature. This is not a lunatic fringe and is definitely not her personal opinion, it is the BJP standing by Independent India’s first terrorist. In a few years, Sri Sri Godse will also be recommended with a Bharat Ratna,” tweeted Owaisi.
