“Ideology of Mahatma Gandhi and that of Nathuram Godse, cannot go hand-in-hand,” Kishor said.
While talking about the party”s ideology. Kishor said, “Nitish Kumar always told us that the party can never leave the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi. But now the party is with those people who support the ideology of Gandhi’s killer Nathuram Godse. Gandhiji and Godse cannot go together.”
