Babulal Chaurasia, the Hindu Mahasabha leader and a devotee of Mahatma Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Godse, has joined the Congress party ahead of the Madhya Pradesh civic body elections.
Babulal Chaurasia had contested the Gwalior municipal elections last time He had left Congress after being denied a ticket and had defeated Congress candidate Shammi Sharma.
The Hindu Mahasabha leader Babulal Chaurasia rose to fame after he had installed statue of Nathuram Godse. Chaurasia had then organized a program called ‘Nathuram Godse’s 70th Sacrifice Day’.
Chaurasia,had then garlanded Godse’s portrait and performed an Aarti on November 2019. He wanted Godse’s testimony in court to be included in the syllabus. He had also vowed to take Godse’s final statement to one lakh people and handed over a memorandum to the chief minister.
As elections to the civic bodies are approaching the state, Chaurasia has now returned to the Congress fold hoping to contest on a party ticket. Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and other senior Congress leaders wholeheartedly welcomed the former Hindu Mahasabha leader to the party.
Congress often targets BJP and RSS for Godse’s act. But now it has no qualms to welcome in the fold one of the most vocal admirers of Godse.
