Tej Pratap Yadav toes Congress’ line to malign Veer Savarkar’s contributions to India’s freedom, calls him ‘coward’ and ‘British agent’

On Tuesday, a pillar with busts of Veer Savarkar, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh had been put up at the North Campus of Delhi University.

Tej Pratap Yadav, the RJD MLA from Mahua in Bihar, took to Twitter to malign Veer Savarkar’s contributions to India’s freedom by branding him a ‘coward’ and a ‘British agent’.

The son of fodder scam convict and Bihar’s former CM Lalu Prasad Yadav, took to Twitter to slander the ABVP-led Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) which had recently installed a pillar with busts of Veer Savarkar, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh at the North Campus of Delhi University.

In his Tweet, the fancy dress buff blamed ABVP which is the RSS’ students’ wing, of ridiculing the sacrifices and contributions made by the other heroic sons of the country in the freedom struggle by installing Savarkar’s bust along with theirs. He says, that the university has not only taught the traitor’s (referring to Savarkar) lesson to its students but have gone a step ahead and installed a statue of the ‘coward’ in the university.

On Tuesday, a pillar with busts of Veer Savarkar, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh had been put up at the North Campus of Delhi University. The pillar was installed by the ABVP-led Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU). As per DUSU’s own admission, the pillar was installed without the permission of the University.

Some people had objected specifically to the Savarkar bust that was installed on the campus. NSUI goons had vandalised the installation, by blackening the face and puting a garland of shoes around it. They had seen the installation of Savarkar’s bust as a prelude to the installation of Nathuram Godse’s bust.

Congress has also on several occasions attempted to malign Veer Savarkar’s contributions to India’s freedom by branding him as a “loyal colonialist”.

NSUI, the students’ wing of the Congress party, straight-out lied that Savarkar worked against the freedom struggle. The Congress government in Rajasthan had gone a step ahead and decided to change the school curriculums to portray Savarkar as a traitor. It’s ex-president, Rahul Gandhi has repeatedly insulted the great revolutionary and freedom fighter Swatantryaveer Savarkar (the meaning of it is ‘Hero of Independence’ Savarkar), and called him a ‘traitor’ for his ‘mercy petitions’ to the British while he was in jail in the Andamans.

Even the mercy petitions ought to be seen in their proper context. One can read behind the actual reasons of Savarkar’s mercy petitions here. Moreover, Savarkar did not give up his political struggle after being released, he continued to serve our motherland as the president of the Hindu Mahasabha.

As much ever these cynics may denounce Savarkar, it is a fact that the seeds of Hindutva Savarkar had sown all those years ago have finally bloomed and Hindutva now dominates the corridors of power.
