IYC to protest against Pragya Thakur’s Godse remark

New Delhi: The Congress has upped the ante against the BJP over the Godse remark of Pragya Thakur in the Lok Sabha as the youth wing of the Congress will stage a protest against the BJP MP outside the Parliament on Friday.

A statement issued by the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) said, “It is organising a peaceful protest outside the Parliament against the malicious statements, hurting the soul of the nation, made by Pragya Singh Thakur during Lok Sabha proceeding on Tuesday.”

Youth Congress spokesperson Amrish Ranjan Pandey said, “Youth Congress demands that Pragya Thakur should be immediately expelled from the Parliament.”

Earlier Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter slamming the BJP over Pragya Thakur’s remark.

Rahul Gandhi’s tweet came a day after Thakur made a controversial remark during a debate in the Lok Sabha when DMK leader A. Raja was reading the statement of Godse in a court on why he killed Mahatma Gandhi.

Earlier on Thursday, the BJP cracked the whip on the controversial Bhopal MP and barred her from attending its parliamentary party meetings in the ongoing Winter Session of Parliament and also removed her from the consultative committee on defence headed by Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.
