“But you (BJP) can’t destroy the legacy of Nehru and Gandhi. We will preserve it,” the senior journalist said.
Making a frontal attack on RSS and BJP here on Saturday, senior journalist Kumar Ketkar said that the Narendra Modi government at the Centre is trying to erase the legacy of country’s freedom movement with a motive to impose the RSS agenda of Hindu Rashtra on the country. Speaking as the chief guest on the theme of “India after Rajiv Gandhi and his legacies” organised by the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) to mark the 25th death anniversary of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, Ketkar said, “Sonia and Rahul Gandhi are not the only enemies of BJP. The entire legacy of India’s freedom movement is also the enemy of BJP. This is because BJP does not have any legacy.” “But you (BJP) can’t destroy the legacy of Nehru and Gandhi. We will preserve it,” the senior journalist said. “You can not destroy the legacies of freedom movement by Nehru-Gandhi by changing the name of Planning Commission or defaming JNU,” he added.
