Savarkar appears on Congress poster in Kerala again | India News


NEW DELHI: Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders rarely miss an opportunity to pan V D Savarkar but the Hindutva ideologue’s face somehow keeps ending up on the party’s publicity material.
In the second such major embarrassment for the party, a Kerala Congress leader posted a Republic Day greetings on his Facebook page with Savarkar’s image among other freedom fighters. The Facebook post quickly went viral on social media.
Other party workers soon raised objection to the poster and Kasaragod district congress committee president P K Faisal immediately deleted his post.

He said the mistake was made by the designer of the poster. “It was a mistake done by the designer of the poster for Republic Day. My Facebook account was being handled by my office staff. We have rectified it and the Indian National Congress does not need to endorse people like Savarkar,” Faisal told reporters.
Previous incident
Last September, a picture of Savarkar featured on an 88-foot-long banner erected as part of welcoming the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Ernakulam district.
The banner at Aluva was put up by Congress workers and had Savarkar’s image between those of Govind Ballabh Pant and Chandra Shekhar Azad.
When notified of the goof-up, Congress workers rushed to the spot to pin Mahatma Gandhi’s poster over Savarkar’s image.
The Indian National Trade Union Congress’s president of the Chengamanad constituency was suspended over the incident.
