New Delhi: Three Opposition parties including Congress today (November 28) gave adjournment notices in the Lok Sabha over BJP MP Pragya Thakur's controversial remark concerning Nathuram Godse. The parties which gave adjournment notices are Trinamool Congress, Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) and the Congress.

When DMK MP A Raja was speaking during a debate on the Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill, 2019, Thakur made the controversial remark. She called Nathuram Godse a deshbakt.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi reacted to her comment and said that he would never forgive her for insulting the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi.

Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh has also given a notice for suspension of business under rule 267 in Rajya Sabha over Thakur's comment in praise of Nathuram Godse the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi.

BJP working president JP Nadda has condemned Thakur's statement saying the BJP does not support "such statement or ideology". "Her statement yesterday in the Parliament is condemnable. BJP never supports such statement or ideology," he said.
