"It is his (Maharaj's) own view .. his personal remark. it is not the stand of the party," Shah told reporters while responding to a volley of questions at the end of his two-day visit to Odisha.

Asked whether action would be taken against Maharaj for making such remark, the BJP president said it was for the disciplinary committee of the party to deal with the matter.
Sakshi Maharaj had earlier stoked a row by describing Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse as a "patriot" and was forced to apologise.
