Mandya: The Congress party which was criticising the Hindutva ideology stating that Veer Savarkar is not a freedom fighter, is now again embarrassed due to Savarkar.

During the Bharat Jodo Yatra, in KR Pete a banner with Veer Savarkar’s portrait went viral. The Congress immediately woke up and pasted Gandhiji’s portrait on it. Now Veer Savarkar’s photo has appeared on the banner related to Bharat Jodo Yatra here. This banner also has the photo of Rahul Gandhi, Siddaramaiah and D. K. Shivakumar. But the Congress claimed that it was the work of miscreants.

Rahul Gandhi is leading the Bharat Jodo Yatra in State and after Mysuru, the Yatra has now reached Mandya. Accordingly, many banners welcoming Rahul Gandhi and related to the Yatra were installed.

Among these, Veera Savarkar’s photo has appeared in the banner which is said to be related to Shantinagar MLA Ahmed Harris. This has embarrassed Congress leaders for the second time.

Speaking to mediapersons, Harris said that this is an act done by some miscreants. This is not a banner put up by us. Harris has warned that he will file a complaint in Mandya District against those who have committed such an act. Earlier on September 21, Savarkar was featured in a Bharat Jodo Yatra poster in Kerala along with other freedom fighters. Gandhiji’s portrait was missing in it. As this photo went viral, vigilant leaders pasted Gandhi’s picture over Savarkar’s portrait.
