Raipur, ANI. central minister Disagreeing with Rajnath Singh’s statement, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel has asked where Mahatma Gandhi and Savarkar met. Where was Mahatma Gandhi and where was Savarkar at that time? Savarkar was in jail. How could they communicate? He had filed a mercy petition from jail and continued to live with the British. After coming out of prison in 1925, he was the first person to talk of two nation theory.

Earlier, Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh had claimed that Savarkar had written a letter of apology to the British after being imprisoned at the behest of Mahatma Gandhi. He said that all the misconceptions were spread about Savarkar and he was looked down upon. He was given analogies like Fascist and Nazism. His contribution to nation building was overlooked. In doing so, people belonging to one ideology were ahead. It cannot be said to be fair. Nationalist Savarkar was and will remain a great hero.
