Congress dares BJP in Gujarat to declare Godse as India’s first terrorist



The Congress has challenged the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Indian state of Gujarat to bring in a proposal to declare Nathuram Godse as nation’s “first terrorist” and an “anti-national”, if they truly believed in Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

Speaking at the motion of Thanks on the Governor’s address brought in by a BJP legislator, the Congress MLA from Dasada Naushad Solanki said that the BJP would not dare to show such courage and take up the challenge.

On Tuesday, Education Minister Jitu Vaghani was challenging the Congress, but today I challenge the BJP that if they truly believe in Gandhi by truth, words and heart and if they have the courage, then bring in a proposal in this house, to declare (the murderer of Gandhi) Nathuram Godse as nation’s first terrorist and an anti-national, he said. “You (BJP) don’t have the guts to accept the truth and now will you teach us nationalism? When your own MPs are considering Godse as a Deshbhakt, how will you now teach us Desh Bhakti?” he asked.—INP
