Parties agreed to avoid emotive issues like Savarkar

Sources revealed that the opposition parties agreed on several issues. It was decided that they would avoid emotive issues like Savarkar and also refrain from criticizing each other. After disqualification from Lok Sabha membership, Rahul Gandhi had said that my name is not Savarkar, it is Gandhi and Gandhi won't apologize.

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday warned that demeaning Savarkar would create cracks in the opposition alliance. Uddhav Thackeray said that he considers Hindutva ideologue V D Savarkar as his idol and asked Rahul to refrain from insulting him.

"Savarkar suffered unimaginable torture in the Andaman cellular jail for 14 years. We can only read the sufferings. It is a form of sacrifice. We will not tolerate the insult of Savarkar," Uddhav Thackeray had said.
