On the status of Mahatma Gandhi, heated arguments took place between Mr. M.A. Khan, M.P. and Mr. Muktar Abbas Naqvi of BJP on the issue of Mahatma Gandhi.
When Anand Sharma declared Mahatma Gandhi as Congress leader, Mr. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi refuted it. He was of the opinion that Mahatma Gandhi was not a Congress leader and that he was an asset to India.
Defending the statement of Anand Sharma, Mr. M.A. Khan told that if BJP considered Gandhiji as an asset of nation it wouldn’t have assassinated him and it wouldn’t have supported his assassin. Talking to media persons, Mr. Khan said that the claims that the retail trade of India would be affected are baseless.
