Mumbai: After differences emerged between Rahul Gandhi and Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena faction over the Congress leader’s comment on Veer Savar Kar, Sanjay Raut appreciated Wayanad MP for enquiring about his health during the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Terming it an act of ” humanity “, Sanjay Raut said, ” Rahul Gandhi called and checked on me yesterday despite his busy schedule amid Bha rat Jodo Yatra. He said we were concerned about your well-being and said take care, we will work together again.
Sanjay Raut appreciated Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s act and said that such gestures are rare in times of political bitterness. ” I appreciate his empathy of feeling the pain of a political colleague who has spent 110 days in jail. In d times of political bitterness, such gestures are becoming rare. Rahulji is focusing on love and compassion in his yatra and is getting massive support, ” he tweeted.
Rahul Gandhi is one such person who stays connected as friends against ideological and political differences. I have friends in BJP as well but they were happy when I was in jail, this is politics of the Mughal era, ” he said.
Earlier on Thursday, while addressing a press conference in Maharashtra on the sidelines of his ongoing’ Bhaat Jodo Yatra ‘, Rahul Gandhi, reading from a letter purportedly written by Savarkar to the British, claimed the saffron ideologue be trayed leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sar dar Vallabh Bhai Patel by signing on a letter of apology to the British before independence.
Veer Savarkar wrote to the Brit ish saying, ‘ Sir, I beg to remain your most obedient servant, and signed on it. Savarkar helped the British. He betrayed leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Sar dar Patel by signing this letter out of fear, ” he had said.
