TDN World Desk: Sadhvi Pragya Singh sofetned her position on Godse remark. Amid backlash from the opposition and hostile situation within her own party, BJP, she formally apologised in lok Sabha on Friday. At the same time she maintained that her reamrks were distorted to give them a different meaning.
To beg pardon at Lok Sabha Sadhvi Pragya said, “I apologise if my remarks have hurt anyone. But my statements made in Parliament are being distorted to give them a different meaning. I respect Mahatma Gandhi’s contribution to the nation.”
After begging for apology, Sadhvi alleged Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of insulting her.
She said, “A member of the House referred to me as terrorist. It is an attack on my dignity. No charges against me have been proven in court. It is an attack on me as a woman, a Parliamentarian and a sanyaasi.”
In a complete reversal of her earlier statement where he praised the killer of Gandhi as ”Deshbhakt”, the BJP MP said, “I acknowledge the contributions of Mahatama Gandhi for this nation.”
