VD Savarkar's photo in a banner set up for Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra in Kerala. (Twitter:@Amit Malviya)THE CONGRESS, which often attacks the BJP over its celebration of V D Savarkar, was in for a major embarrassment on Wednesday. A banner put up at Aluva in Ernakulam, Kerala, to mark Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra passing through the area, contained photos of icons such as Chandrashekhar Azad, Rabindranath Tagore, Govind Ballabh Pant, Abul Kalam Azad – and Savarkar.

As photos of the banner flashed through social media, the Congress tried to literally cover up by putting Mahatma Gandhi’s photo over Savarkar’s. But the damage was done.

BJP president K Surendran said the Congress has concealed Savarkar’s picture to appease extremist forces. “Congress has once again proved that it is against the country. Rahul Gandhi’s yatra is only meant to win over the extremist elements. The yatra is sponsored by anti-national elements. Self-respecting Congress leaders and workers should come out of that party,’’ he said.

BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawala tweeted: “Oops! It seems all attempts by Rahul to obfuscate history did not work! Veer Savarkar against whom Rahul has been spewing lies was exposed when his #BharatJodo Yatra in Aluva, Ernakulam carried posters of Veer Savarkar!”

Veer Savarkar’s pictures adorn Congress’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in Ernakulum (near airport). Although belated, good realisation for Rahul Gandhi, whose great grandfather Nehru, signed a mercy petition, pleaded the British to allow him to flee from Punjab’s Nabha jail in just 2 weeks. pic.twitter.com/i8KxicPl1y
