RSS Chief says, he is not a political person

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday said the Sangh has been targeted since last 90 years, but there is no need to worry as the society is one and will always remain so.  Bhagwat also stressed that he was not a political person.  After casting his vote in Nagpur for the Maharashtra Assembly polls, the RSS chief was talking to the media.

When asked what will be the outcome of the ongoing state polls, the RSS chief said, “I cannot presume as I am not a political person. The results will be out in three days and everyone will get to know.”

In the meanwhile Senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has praised Veer Savarkar. Contrary to the criticism the Congress has heaped upon the BJP, Abhishek Manu Singhvi took a different line and praised the Hindu ideologue as an accomplished man who played a part in India’s freedom struggle. Singhvi said that Savarkar fought for the Dalit rights and went to jail for the country. Singhvi, however, added that he personally did not subscribe to Savarkar’s ideology. “I personally don’t subscribe to Savarkar’s ideology but that doesn’t take away the fact that he was an accomplished man who played part in our freedom struggle, flights for Dalit rights and went to jail for the country,” he tweeted.

His statement goes against his own party line which claims that Savarkar had no role to play in the country’s freedom struggle. Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi had once called Savarkar a ‘coward’ who wrote letters to the British when several leaders from Congress were in jail fighting for the country.

The recent debate began with BJP-Shiv Sena’s promise of a Bharat Ratana to the Hindutva icon if elected back to power in Maharashtra. But this did not go down well with many opposition parties including Congress. Former union minister and senior Congress leader Manish Tewari said that if the Centre awards Bharat Ratna to Savarkar in 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi then “God save the country”.
