Shiv |Sena warns Rahul on Veer Savarkar remark
Mumbai: Shiv Sena, the latest ally of Congress in Maharashtra, called out Rahul Gandhi on Saturday's remark "I'm not Rahul Savarkar." Congress should not disrespect Veer Savarkar, the Sena said, as Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru were revered by their group. Reiterating his refusal to apologize for his comment on "Rape in India," which triggered a political storm, Rahul Gandhi did not "excuse me for the truth I was speaking." "My name is not Rahul Savarkar, I am Rahul Gandhi. I will never, nor will any Congressman, apologize for speaking the truth. It's Narendra Modi and his assistant Amit Shah who must apologize to the country for destroying the economy of India, "he added on Saturday afternoon in his opening remarks at the party's mega rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan.
