New Delhi: RJD leader and former CM of Bihar Rabri Devi, on Sunday hit out at CM Nitish Kumar over his remark  condemning Sadhvi Pragya’s comment on Nathuram Godse. Reacting to Kumar’s comment Rabri questioned that why does he not resign if Sadhvi’s comment hurt him so much.

“Kumar should have parted ways with the BJP, if he is hurt over Pragya Thakur's comment. He should have resigned” Rabri was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.


Sounding confident of winning all seats in the state, Rabri said: “We are getting 40 out of 40 seats. The Mahagathbandhan is relaxed. On May 23, everything will be clear.”

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday strongly condemned BJP's Bhopal candidate Pragya Singh Thakur's controversial remark describing assassin of Mahatama Gandhi, Nathuram Godse as "patriot' and said BJP should consider expelling her from the party.

Kumar, president of BJP's strong ally JD(U), made it clear that his party would not tolerate such things.

"This is highly condemnable. We will not tolerate all these things (Thakur's statement terming Godse as patriot). Bapu is the father of the nation and people will not like if anyone talks about Godse in this manner, " Kumar said.

Pragya Thakur on May 16, stoked a huge controversy by terming Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse was a 'true patriot', a statement her party condemned .

The Opposition parties tore into Pragya, saying what she said reflected the mindset of the people nurtured in RSS ideology.
