‘Totally unacceptable’

The Congress leader demanded that the BJP should withdraw his candidature for Lok Sabha elections .

“This is totally unacceptable and his candidature should be withdrawn forthwith by those who spare no effort to appropriate the Mahatma’s legacy,” Ramesh asserted.

“What will the Father of the Do-nation do to protect the Father of the Nation?” Ramesh asked in a veiled dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

‘Can’t choose between Gandhi and Godse’

In a recent interview with AajTak Bangla Abhijit Gangopadhyay, reportedly said that he “cannot choose between (Mahatma) Gandhi and (Naturam) Godse”, asserting that he felt compelled to delve into the reasoning behind Godse’s actions.

“As someone from the legal profession, I must try and understand the other side of the story. I must read his (Nathuram Godse) writings and understand what triggered him to kill Mahatma Gandhi. Until then, I cannot choose between Gandhi and Godse,” the former Judge was quoted as saying.

Gangopadhyay, while condemning the murder of Mahatma Gandhi, also underscored the “necessity of examining all facets of historical events”.
