The article in “Kesari” the journal owned by RSS led by Mohan Bhagwat, has irked the Congress in Kerala. The resentment is because the article has criticized Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The Article has held Nehru responsible for the partition, and also for the assassination of Gandhi. It further tagged Nehru as “selfish”. As per the Article Nehru had hidden important facts from Gandhi about partition, and also had kept Gandhi away from the final round of discussions. The Congress has accused the Sangh Parivar for attempting to distort History and deface Nehru.
Unshaken by the allegation, the Editor of Kesari N R Madhu reverted saying Congress had political motives and they are the once who have distorted the facts. He further said, “ This is not the first time we are criticizing Nehru’s policies and approaches to vital issues including partition. “
N R Madhu emphasized this was an attempt by the Congress leaders to show down the accusation made by the CPI-M that the Congress was Soft towards RSS, with reference to the Murder of the Sang activist Elamthottathil Manoj at Kathirur in Kannur district.
