Independence day ad

Karnataka BJP has dropped India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s photo from the Independence Day advertisement paying tribute to freedom fighters. A massive political row has erupted in Karnataka after the controversial ad went viral on social media.

The Newspaper ad in which Nehru has been excluded from the list of freedom fighters is doing rounds on social media.

Taking to Twitter, a range of Congress leaders have shared the controversial ad dropping Nehru from the freedom fighter’s list.

Sharing a controversial ad, Congress general secretary Jairam has slammed the Basvraj Bommai-led Karnataka government and tweeted that Nehru will survive such pettiness. Karnataka CM Basavraj Bommai desperate to save his job knows what he has done is an insult to his father SR Bommai and his father’s first political guru MN Roy both were Nehru’s great admirers. Pathetic this is, he said in his tweet.

Former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah sought an apology from CM Bommai for the insult. The RSS is allergic to Nehru as his government banned the RSS after Gandhi’s assassination, he said.

Let it be remembered that Nehru spent 9 years of his life in jail. He was not a coward like Savarkar, Siddaramaiah tweeted.

Clarifying the government’s stand on it, the Karnatak BJP leader Mohan Krishna said Nehru’s picture is already there in the sketch along with Mahatma Gandhi, Rani Lakshmi Bai, and other leaders. The opposition is trying to blow it up by showing to the people something which is not true, he also said.

The Independence special ad published in Sunday Times is not included Jawaharlal Nehru in the list of freedom fighters but it includes Mahatma Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose, Tipu Sultan and Veer Savarkar among others.

The advertisement included Savarkar’s name as Revolutionary Savarkar. The ad also said Vinayak Damodar Savarkar published several books which advocated obtaining complete independence through revolutionary means. He was imprisoned in Andaman Nicobar and subjected to excessive torture, the ad reads.

This added fuel to the BJP-Congress spat over the Central government’s Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, the campaign is being questioned by the opposition for many reasons.

Responding to the Congress’s questioning on RSS for not changing its DP until it did on Friday, the BJP youth wing leader Tejasvi Surya had earlier said he will arrange history classes for those who are questioning the role of the RSS.

On PM Modi’s call to change their DP with Tiranga to mark the 75th year of Independence, the Congress leaders have changed their DP with Jawaharlal Nehru’s picture holding the national flag, which led to the BJP questioning the party’s dynastic attitude.
