Former Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal has reacted to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s statement regarding freedom fighter Savarkar. It would have been better if Rahul Gandhi could have avoided the statement. Chhagan Bhujbal said that in history, there is something plus or minus in everyone’s case. Now that the elixir of freedom has been celebrated, the sacrifices of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and the people who have come to the streets saying that their names have not been mentioned, what was the contribution to freedom? Bhujbal has asked this question. Taking selective Savarkar is wrong. Rahul Gandhi may avoid such questions. But I think there is such an important question in front of us today. But who am I to tell them? All this great congregation is with him. The speakers and marchers are also bigger than me, what can I say about them, he added.
After Rahul Gandhi’s statement, marches and agitations are going on across the state. Rahul Gandhi’s journey was going very well. But no one was showing you. Yatra is now well discussed on your channel. I would say that this important advantage has definitely been achieved in the eyes of Rahul Gandhi. There is no point in going into all this history now. Rahul Gandhi is talking about whatever problems are there now. Inflation, unemployment, oppression are taking over different institutions and unilateral governance is taking place. They are talking about all this and getting good support from all over. If there was any question, Rahul Gandhi showed some letters. I am no historian. But then what Indira Gandhi said to that letter, what Mahatma Gandhi said, what he did because he did it… there should be ideological opposition to that letter, Bhujbal responded.
Waiting for a split in the Mahavikas Aghadi, Gulabrao Patal’s reaction to Raut’s statement
I have a definite good feeling about Savarkar’s devotion to national service and the hardships he went through, the prison. Something else must have happened. But Savarkar wrote an apology saying that it is a very big thing for the country to suffer the punishment of internal black water for so many years, did he participate in the freedom struggle or not? Historians should discuss whether it was politics or strategy, and those who are taking out marches now know only this about Savarkar, but you should take Savarkar’s Hindutva. Savarkar says that cows, cows etc. are all useful animals. His scientific views should be accepted that those who have become bhakad must be disposed of, which is opposed by those who are taking out the march today. Savarkar is being used only for politics, said Chhagan Bhujbal. We should accept that Savarkar suffered for the country. Whatever happened after that is a secondary question. Everyone’s country service is important. Whatever is now should be set aside. Bhujbal urged that there should be more discussion on the problems that exist today without going too much into history.
