Pragya Singh Thakur, BJP candidate from the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat, on Thursday, said that Nathuram Godse was a "deshbhakt (patriot)", is a "deshbhakt (patriot)" and will remain a "deshbhakt (patriot). You judge who is more cruel in this??"

"The Congress compromised on the country's security for vote bank politics", he said. American agencies also supported this that these people are associated with the LeT. The JD (U) has said that status quo should be maintained on Article 370, and the Ayodhya issue should be resolved either by court or consensus. The party's disciplinary committee, he pointed out, will decide action against each of them. "Nationalistic luminaries of the BJP, have the guts to spell out your stand", Vadra posted on the social media as Congress urged Election Commission to cancel her candidature. "People calling him a terrorist should instead look within, such people will be given a befitting reply in these elections".

Modi, who had told a TV channel during his last rally at Khargone in Madhya Pradesh on May 17, said that "the remarks made about Gandhiji or Nathuram Godse are very bad and very wrong for society".

Pragya Thakur kicked a row by describing Godse as "deshbhakt".

Asked about the BJP terming her remarks as her personal views, she agreed and added that she was a disciplined worker of the party.

Shah had said that party's disciplinary committee has sought an explanation from them in 10 days. However, keeping in mind the public sentiment and the dignity and ideology of the BJP, it has been chose to refer this to the disciplinary committee. While Kateel apologised for his tweets, Hegde claimed that his account was hacked and someone else had tweeted the controversial statements.
