"They have withdrawn their statements and have also apologised. However, their remarks are against the decorum of public life and the BJP, and also against the party's ideology.

"Taking serious note of their remarks, the party has decided to send them to the disciplinary committee," Shah said.

Thakur had on May 16 said Godse was a "patriot", while on May 16, Hegde tweeted that he was "happy" over the debate on Godse, but later claimed that his account had been hacked.
