Does BJP agree with Sardar Patel's view on RSS: Tewari
Tuesday October 29, 2013 12:52 PM, IANS

Congress leader Manish Tewari Monday said India's first home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was opposed to the RSS, and asked whether the BJP agrees with his views.

He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and it's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi were trying to hijack Sardar Patel's legacy.

"RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh) and BJP have been attempting to appropriate the legacy of Sardar Patel," Tewari said.

"I wanted to ask the BJP that do they endorse or agree with the views of Sardar Patel about the RSS?" he said to reporters here.

"Patel refers to Communal poison spread by RSS that Golwalkar headed. Does Swayamsevak Modi agree with Patel on RSS? Whose Legacy they crave!" the nformation and broadcasting minister said in a tweet Tuesday morning.

"Patel to Golwalkar: As a final result of (communal) poison, country had to suffer the sacrifice of the invaluable life of Gandhiji," Tewari tweet read.

The BJP, and especially Modi, have often accused the Congress of ignoring Patel's legacy and promoting Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.
