    Pragya Singh Thakur, the BJP’s Bhopal lawmaker, who got into controversy when she called Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse a deshbhakt (patriot).

    She will have to apologise again, it was decided at a meeting of floor leaders called by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Friday, people familiar with the matter said.

    The 49-year-old Bhopal MP had apologised for her controversial remarks earlier on Friday morning before launching a direct attack at her detractors.

    Pragya Thakur, who read out a one-page statement in Hindi in the Lok Sabha, had also insisted that her one-line call had been twisted to attack her.

    The apology was meant to curb the row that erupted in Parliament and sparked national outrage over the BJP lawmaker’s remarks.
