Karnataka government’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ advertisement has given rise to a new controversy. In fact, the Karnataka government has published an advertisement in the newspaper remembering the freedom fighters under PM Modi’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign. In this advertisement, freedom fighters who played a big role in the independence of the country have been given place. The special thing is that the former Prime Minister of the country Jawaharlal Nehru is missing from this advertisement of the state government, while Vinayak Savarkar has been given his place. This advertisement was published on 14th August. Now the Karnataka Congress has given its strong reaction to this advertisement of the state government.
On the other hand, on the occasion of India’s second ‘Partition Vibhishika Memorial Day’, the BJP has released a video targeting the Congress party, in which the BJP has released its version on the events of 1947. In this seven-minute video, Jawaharlal Nehru has been held responsible for the partition of India. Nehru has been blamed for succumbing to the demand of the Muslim League led by Mohammad Ali Jinnah to create Pakistan.

Congress has retaliated on this video. Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that the prime minister’s real intention behind celebrating August 14 as Partition Vibhishika Memorial Day is to use the most painful historical events for his political gains. At the same time, he said, ‘The efforts of modern-day Savarkar and Jinnah to divide the country continue even today.’
Let us tell you that on August 14 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that every year 14 August would be celebrated as ‘Bhajan Vibhishika Memorial Day’ to remind the country of the sufferings and sacrifices of Indians during Partition in 1947. PM Modi has also tweeted about this on Sunday morning.
