Nagpur: Reiterating that freedom fighter Vinayak Savarkar had helped British, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said he betrayed other freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel.
While interacting with the media at Balapur in Akola district, he read out a letter written by Savarkar to British where he sought their apology stating “I beg to remain your most obedient servent”.
Accompanied by senior leaders like Jairam Ramesh, MPCC president Nana Patole, former minister Balasaheb Thorat, party’s Maharashtra in-charge HK Bhagat and senior journalist Kumar Ketkar, the Wayanad MP asked Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to read Savarkar’s letter. He said a copy should be sent to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat too.
“My opinion is Gandhi, Nehru, Patel all went to jail, but never signed any such letter to British despite being under intense pressure. But Savarkar wilted under the pressure and surrendered before them. He also told all these leaders to follow him by signing the letter, but they did not buckled under the pressure,” he said.
Reacting to threats by few political organisations like MNS to stop his Yatra following his comments on Savarkar, the Gandhi scion said they were welcome to do it. “Even the government can stop this Yatra, if it wants to. We are not dictators, we are ready to discuss all the issues. But, I am very clear that Savarkar indeed helped British,” said Gandhi.
