Parrikar has cornered RSS leadership, says Subhash Velingkar
Ratcheting up his attack on the BJP and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar in particular, RSS rebel Subhash Velingkar on Wednesday said entire Sangh cadre is rallying behind the alliance of Goa Suraksha Manch, MGP and Shiv Sena.
He also accused BJP of "repeating the sins of erstwhile Congress government and misinterpreting the Goan culture" which he said is purely Indian and not a "fusion" culture.
"Sangh always works in unison. (Defence Minister and ex-Goa CM) Manohar Parrikar attempted my removal as Goa RSS chief with the aim to finish the agitation demanding withdrawal of grants to English medium schools," Velingkar told a joint press conference with Sena president Uddhav Thackeray. Accusing Parrikar of "cornering" the central Sangh leadership and the leadership in Konkan prant, Velingkar, said, "I am feeling pained to see that those leaders who represent ethos of people have surrendered before BJP."
