Rahul Gandhi Remarks Row: The court issued a direction to investigate the complaint lodged by Rahul Gandhi regarding his alleged objectionable remarks on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar.
Savarkar Remarks Row: A Lucknow court in Uttar Pradesh has ordered an inquiry into the case filed against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday (May 2). The court has issued instructions to investigate the complaint lodged by Rahul Gandhi regarding his alleged objectionable remarks on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar (VD Savarkar) during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Ambareesh Kumar Srivastava passed the order on an application filed by advocate Nripendra Pandey under section 156(3) of the CrPC. The court directed the Hazratganj police station to investigate the matter on behalf of an inspector-level officer. The next hearing in the case will be on June 2.
What was said in the petition?
Pandey has alleged in his petition that on November 17, with the intention of spreading hatred in the society, Rahul Gandhi called Vinayak Damodar Savarkar a servant of the British and said that he had taken pension from the British. It was said in the petition that Veer Savarkar was a fearless freedom fighter, who endured inhuman atrocities to free Mother India from the slavery of the British.
The complainant said in his complaint that Rahul Gandhi insulted Veer Savarkar by using indecent words to spread inferiority complex and made hateful statements. Mahatma Gandhi has described Veer Savarkar as a patriot, but Rahul Gandhi is creating social disharmony and hatred by unnecessary propaganda against him with his statements. Due to which he (complainant) has suffered mental agony.
Rahul Gandhi had said this
Significantly, during the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi had given a statement about Veer Savarkar in Maharashtra in the month of November last. He had claimed that Savarkar had helped the British. He had written a letter to the British saying that I want to be your servant. He had signed the apology out of fear. By doing this he betrayed Mahatma Gandhi and other leaders.
