BJP MP Anantkumar Hegde was unrepentant about his comments calling the Mahatma Gandhi-led freedom struggle "big drama" staged with the "consent and support of the British". Censured by his party, the former union minister said he stood by his statement and had never once mentioned Mahatma Gandhi. BJP sources have said that Mr Hegde's comments have upset top leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
