After losing to BJP’s Pragya Singh Thakur from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh Friday said it was a matter of concern that Mahatma Gandhi’s ideology lost to that of his killer Nathuram Godse.

Addressing a press conference in Bhopal, he said “As per the traditions of Indian democracy, I accept this mandate of people but I am worried about only one thing that today in this country, the ideology of the killer of Mahatma Gandhi won and the ideology of Gandhi lost. This is a cause of concern for me.”

His comment was in reference to Pragya Thakur’s pre-poll remark where she had called Nathuram Godse a ‘deshbhakt’ (patriot).

On May 16, while addressing a roadshow in Agra, Thakur had said, “Nathuram Godse was a patriot, is a patriot, and will remain a patriot… those who call him a terrorist should look within… they will get a reply in this election.”

BJP candidate Pragya Thakur on Friday won her maiden Lok Sabha elections from Bhopal by a margin of 3,64,822 lakh votes. The Bhopal seat has been a safe bastion for the BJP in the general elections since 1989.
