Speaking on this occasion, Chief Minister Shinde said, Rahul Gandhi made a derogatory statement about the independence hero Savarkar, who laid down his life to liberate India from independence, suffered the punishment of black water, and endured tyranny for 11 years. The yatra of Rahul Gandhi, who is making a fuss about Savarkar, who is a symbol of intense patriotism, should not be called
Add India'' butLeave India”.
Congress deliberately ignored the views of Swatantra Veer Savarkar. It continues till today. Deputy Chief Minister Fadnavis warned that those who defied Savarkar will not be buried in the ground.
Lord Mountbatten, his wife Lady Mountbatten and daughter accompanied Jawaharlal Nehru to Simla. Nehru then allowed the partition of the country without asking anyone and the massacre of 2 million Hindus took place. Nehru used to write to Lady Mountbatten every night until his death to inform her of all the happenings. Ranjit Savarkar said that the British did not need to appoint anyone separately for espionage, because Lady Mountbatten was providing all the information to the British. Sanjay Upadhyay presented the similarities between Balasaheb Thackeray and Savarkar.
