Rahul can never be Savarkar even in his best dreams: Anurag Thakur

New Delhi:

Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi, Union Minister Anurag Thakur has said the Congress leader can never be Veer Savarkar even in his “best dreams” as it required strong determination and love for the country.

Thakur was responding to repeated assertions by Rahul Gandhi that Savarkar was an “apologist” of the British colonisers and that he would never express any regret for criticising the BJP-led government.

“Dear Shri Gandhi, you can never be SAVARKAR even in your best dreams because being Savarkar requires strong determination, love for Bharat, selflessness and commitment,” the senior BJP leader said on Twitter on Sunday.
