'Rahul Ji, you now read these': Fadnavis drags Indira Gandhi to Savarkar row

Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis posted a long thread on Twitter attacking Rahul Gandhi over the ongoing Savarkar row triggered by Rahul Gandhi’s comments on the Hindutva ideologue. Dragging Indira Gandhi to the debate, Fadnavis posted a 1980 letter written by the former PM and said, “Just read what former prime minister of Inia Mrs Indira Gandhi (your grandmother) said about Savarkarji. Here she called Veer Savarjar ji the pillar of the freedom movement and the remarkable son of India.”
Fadnavis shared a letter written by Mahatma Gandhi and asked him to read the last lines of the letter as it has the same closing as the Savarkar’s letter that Rahul Gandhi waved at a press meet on Thursday and said Savarkar helped the British.
“I have a document that comprises Savarkar’s letter to the British in which he has stated, ‘I beg to remain sir your most obedient servant’. This is not written by me but by Savarkar ji. Let everyone read this document,” Rahul Gandhi said. “I am clearly of the view that he helped the British,” Rahul Gandhi added.
“Rahul ji, yesterday you asked me to read the last lines of a letter. Now let me read some documents to you today. Have you read this letter from our respected Mahatma Gandhi? Does it have the same last lines you wanted me to read?” Fadnavis tweeted.
In his attack on Rahul Gandhi, Fadnavis shared statements of NCP leader Sharad Pawar, former PM PV Narasimha Rao and other Congress leaders of Maharashtra — on Savarkar.
