Bhopal: A Congress Member of Legislative Assembly from Madhya Pradesh has threatened to burn Sadhvi Pragya alive if she sets foot in the state.
Govardhan Dangi made the comments in wake of the recent controversies surrounding Bhopal MP Sadhvi Pragya’s comments in the Parliament on Wednesday in which she allegedly praised Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse and called the latter a ‘deshbhakt’.
“We will not just burn her effigy…if she sets foot here, we will burn her also,” the Biaora MLA told reporters on Thursday.
Pragya had made the remarks in the Parliament on Wednesday when DMK MP A Raja was in the middle of narrating a statement by Godse before a court explaining why he had assassinated the Father of the Nation.
Following her remarks, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla stated that no debate would be held on her comments since what she had uttered had been “expunged” from records.
