New Delhi: Hindutva champion Veer Savarkar once again clouded political waters on Wednesday when the leftist government in Kerala presented him along with other freedom fighters along the route for Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.

BJP lashes out at Rahul Gandhi

Swearing at Wayanad MP and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, BJP spokesman Shehzad Poonawalla said: “Rahul ji, no matter how much you try… history and truth will come out.”

“Savarkar was Veer! Those who hide are the ‘kaayars’”.

“Oops! It seems that all of Rahul’s attempts to cover up history have failed!” tweeted Poonawalla, adding: “Veer Savarkar whom Rahul spews lies at was exposed when his #BharatJodo Yatra in Aluva, Ernakulam carried posters of Veer Savarkar! Later they tried to cover it up! Savarkar Zindabad.”

Poonawalla said that truth and history cannot be hidden. “It doesn’t matter how many lies and poison Rahul Gandhi spews, and he even rejects Indira Gandhi’s views on Savarakar.”

Savarkar’s poster was spotted along with other freedom fighters by Kerala’s independent MLA PV Anwar, supported by the LDF.

Congress has corrected its mistake by covering Savarkar’s image with Mahatma Gandhi,” Anwar said.

The fight over Savarkar’s photos and poster is nothing new in South India. In August this year, there were violent protests in Karnataka and senior state congress leader BK Hariprasad brought himself into controversy by calling Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Veer Savarkar “the same”.

“It is because of Jinnah and Savarkar that the country is facing the current situation,” Hariprasad said.

Veer Savarkar was an atheist. He doesn’t believe in any god. Likewise, Jinnah was also an atheist. Two atheists came together to bring the nation to its present state,’ he had said.
