Tushar Gandhi slams Maha govt for mentioning Mahatma's name in


Tushar Gandhi, the great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, has attacked the Maharastra government for not mentioning the name of the Father of the Nation in its circular regarding a two-minutes silence to be observed on his death anniversary tomorrow.

Tushar, in a couple of tweets, expressed his annoyance over the matter, asking that “why the ideology that murdered Bapu will commemorate it?”

“Maha Govt circular regarding 2 min silence tomorrow does not mention Gandhi Punyatithee. I’to pay homage to martyrs of freedom movement,” he tweeted.

He embedded his previous tweet while saying why would the ideology that murdered Bapu commemorate the occasion, without naming any party.

“Oh but why would the ideology that murdered Bapu commemorate his murder?,” he tweeted.

Tushar is the son of Arun Manilal Gandhi, the grandson of Manilal Gandhi and the great grandson of the Mahatma. He had led the 75th anniversary re-enactment of the Dandi March in March 2005.
