BJP Removes MP Pragya Thakur From Defence Panel
GUWAHATI: The Centre removed controversial BJP Bhopal MP Pragya Thakur from the Parliamentary Defence Panel after her remarks on Nathuram Godse.
According to reports, Thakur had praised Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a deshbhakt during a parliamentary session.
JP Nadda, BJP working president said that Thakur has been barred from participating in the parliamentary party meetings.
Sources say the BJP's disciplinary committee is likely to expel her from the party.
Earlier on November 27 during a Lok Sabha discussion on the Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill, DMK member A Raja cited a statement by Godse on why he killed Mahatma Gandhi. Sadhvi Pragya interrupted him and said he couldn't give the example "of a deshbhakt".
Opposition members protested her interruption, and BJP members asked her to sit down.
