Savarkar At Reception For Rahul’s Jodo Yatra; Congress Flaunts Gandhi Assassination Case Accused On Its Banner

Web Desk‌Updated: Wednesday Sep 21, 2022

Kochi:  While saffron affinity is getting hard to contain for Congress, the latest practically placed Mahatma Gandhi and Savarkar in picture-perfect  alignment.

In the incident, Savarkar, the Hindutva ideologue charged as conspirator in Gandhi assassination case,  appeared among tall leaders on Congress Billboard at the reception for Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra. The not-so-surprising incident happened in  Chengamanad where the Congress Mandala Committee, on the national highway at Kottai near Nedumbassery, erected a mammoth arch with picture of the Sangh ideologue susected of planning Gandhi assasination  VD Savarkar, to welcome Rahul’s yatra.

As resentment grew, a photo  of Mahatma Gandhi was hung to cover Savarkar's  picture. Incidentally, this controversial banner was installed close to the residence of Congress MLA Anwar Sadhat in his constituency Aluva.

The banner was readied under leadership of former Panchayat president,  Dileeo Kuprassery. With the incident gathering spotlight,  a large sized Mahtma Gandhi picture was hastily fetched from somewhere by  INTUC leader, Suresh Athani.

The Gandhi picture was then superimposed on Savarkar’s - an amusing  anecdote where Savarkar  was positioned to perfectly align  behind  Congress’s towering leader, Mahatma Gandhi.
