SFI flays Gadkari's remarks

Mangalore: Nov 7, 2012 DH News Service

Condemning BJP President Nitin Gadkari for comparing Swami Vivekananda's IQ to that of Dawood Ibrahim, Student Federation of India (SFI) members burnt the effigy of Nithin Gadkari at a protest outside Deputy Commissioner's office in Mangalore on Tuesday.

Speaking at the protest, Student Federation of India State Joint Secretary Jeevan Raj Kuthar said that Gadkari does not have the right to even say Vivekananda's name, when he is not aware of the ideologies of the great saint.

“Gadkari has hurt the sentiments of Indians by insulting Swami Vivekananda. In a matter of fact Gadkari's IQ may be same as Dawood's,” he said.


Student Federation of India District President Nitin Kuthar said that Gadkari belonging to RSS is using Vivekananda to break the nation. He is hiding his true intentions from people.

“First let RSS control terrorism. Members accused of bomb blasts such as Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur belonged to RSS,” he said.
