Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Saturday said that he would accept Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a “true Gandhian” if the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) starts raising the “Nathuram Godse murdabad (Down with Godse)” slogans.
Addressing a press conference, Bhupesh Baghel said that he will accept the Bharatiya Janata Party and the RSS value Mahatma Gandhi if they raise the slogans of “Godse murdabad”.
“The day BJP, RSS start raising slogan ‘Godse murdabad’. I will accept that they value Mahatma Gandhi. I will accept Modi ji has become true Gandhian when action is taken against those from the RSS and the VHP who keep Godse’s idols in their homes,” Bhupesh Baghel said.
