THANE: Congress workers here today burnt effigy of Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse on his death anniversary which is being observed by Hindu outfit as 'Balidan Diwas'.

Party workers led by Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) secretary Manoj Shinde protested against Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) and those supporting Godse by burning his effigy at Gandhi Park here.

They also carried black placards condemning the move of the city-based outfit to build a temple for Godse.

The outfit had last year announced to build a temple in memory of Godse.

Prior to the protest, Shinde criticised the BJP-Shiv Sena government in the state for failing to arrest inflation during the ongoing festive season.

Godse was hanged to death on November 15, 1949 and to commemorate the day, members of ABHM today launched a website in his memory this morning in Meerut.
