It’s been close to 70 years since Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated by Nathuram Godse and his assassination still remains a topic to debate. After the Supreme court had ordered for re-investigation on Gandhi’s murder, it has become a hot topic yet again.
Union Minister Uma Bharti who took a dig at the Congress party said that if there’s anyone who got benefitted from Gandhi’s assassination, then it’s the Congress party.
According to news agency report, Uma Bharti said, “Gandhi ji ki hatya ka fayda sirf Congress ko hua kyunki Gandhi ji Congress ko disperse karne wale they” (Mahatma Gandhi had plans to disperse the Congress hence, the maximum gain of his assassination has been reaped out by the Congress).
She further said, the murder of Mahatma Gandhi needs reconsideration. “Godse may have killed Gandhi, but who instigated him?,” the Union Minister questioned. Mahatma Gandhi was murdered on January 30, 1948, in Delhi by Nathuram Vinayak Godse, who was a member of Hindu Mahasabha.
Uma Bharti’s comments come a few days after the Supreme Court on October 6 appointed senior advocate and former additional solicitor general Amrendra Sharan as amicus curiae on a plea seeking re-probe of Gandhi’s murder. The plea is filed by Mumbai-based Dr. Pankaj Phadnis, a researcher and a trustee of Abhinav Bharat.
