Bharat Jodo Yatra: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi is out on India Jodo Yatra these days. His journey which started from Tamil Nadu has reached Kerala. Rahul is also an MP from Wayanad Lok Sabha seat of Kerala. They will reach Kochi in Kerala today. The entire city has been flooded with Congress posters to welcome him. In this episode, Congress workers had put up posters of freedom fighters of the country on the roadside at one place. Among them, a poster of freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar was also put up.
As soon as the top leaders of the state Congress came to know about this, there was panic in the party. Immediately an order was given to remove Savarkar’s poster. After this some Congress workers covered the poster of Veer Savarkar with the poster of Mahatma Gandhi. However, this entire incident was caught on camera, which is now going viral on social media.
Congress did not give any response
Rahul Gandhi, who will start the India Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7, will reach Kochi in Kerala on Thursday. Long banners have been put up on the roadside to welcome the yatra, in which there is a photo of freedom fighters. One banner had a picture of Veer Savarkar in the middle of Chandrashekhar Azad and Pandit Govind Ballabh Pant. As soon as the Congress leaders came to know about this, immediately the exercise to cover it was started. Gandhiji’s photo was called on the spot and it was placed on top of Savarkar’s photo. This whole incident is becoming quite viral on social media. Congress has not yet commented on this.
Rahul Gandhi has been an attacker on Savarkar
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi has always been an attacker on Veer Savarkar. He has been constantly trying to surround the ruling BJP with Savarkar. Three years ago in Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan, at the Save India rally called by the Congress against the Modi government, Rahul Gandhi had said in a stern tone, I ask you to apologize for speaking the right thing. Brothers and sisters, my name is not Rahul Savarkar but Rahul Gandhi. I will never apologize for the truth and neither will any Congressman apologise.
Let us tell you that there is a deep difference of opinion between the Left and the Right Wing regarding Veer Savarkar. The right-wing section considers Vinayak Damodar Savarkar as a patriot like other freedom fighters of the country, while the left-wing alleges that Savarkar had made an agreement with the British for his release from jail.
