Uddhav Thackeray’s party to boycott opposition meeting called by Congress over Rahul Gandhi’s Savarkar remarks

Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena (UBT) will not attend the opposition meeting and dinner called by Congress Monday evening to protest the remarks by Rahul Gandhi against Savarkar.

The decision comes a day after Uddhav Thackeray warned Rahul Gandhi in his Malegaon rally on Sunday saying they “will not tolerate insult of Savarkar”.

Sanjay Raut, speaking to news agency ANI, said their party decided not to attend the meeting at Mallikarjun Kharge’s residence today “because Rahul Gandhi said that I am not Savarkar, I am Gandhi”.

Gandhi’s statement, “My name is not Savarkar, won’t apologize,” seems to have caused great offense to Thackeray’s party.

Rahul Gandhi during a press conference on Saturday after his disqualification from the Lok Sabha said that his name is not Savarkar but Gandhi and Gandhi does not offer an apology to anyone.

His statement came after repeated calls by the BJP seeking his apology over various issues, including in the 2019 criminal defamation case.
