Congress targets BJP for promising to demand Bharat Ratna for Veer Savarkar in Maharashtra election manifesto

The Congress party harbours a virulent hatred against Veer Savarkar. On numerous occasions, they have called him a 'traitor' and worse. Recently, the students' wing of the party had opposed the installation of Savarkar's bust at Delhi University campus.

The Congress party has targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for its manifesto promise of demanding a Bharat Ratna for Veer Savarkar for his stellar contribution to the Indian freedom movement.

Congress leaders say that they’re “expecting a Bharat Ratna for Godse also” after the manifesto promise was made. Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Veerappa Moily said, “That is their culture. They are going totally against the Indian culture of pluralism. They are moving towards fanaticism. With that, the force to fight against terrorism will disappear from the culture of India. Most unfortunately, that kind of a culture is encouraged here in the land of Mahatma Gandhi.”

The BJP working President JP Nadda and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis released the party’s manifesto earlier today for the upcoming state assembly polls. The manifesto stated the party’s demand to confer the Bharat Ratna award to Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Savitribai Phule and Veer Savarkar.

The Congress party harbours a virulent hatred against Veer Savarkar. On numerous occasions, they have called him a ‘traitor’ and worse. Recently, the students’ wing of the party had opposed the installation of Savarkar’s bust at Delhi University campus.
