Minister Kumar defended the move to put up a photo of Savarkar in the Assembly hall of Suvarna Soudha, stating he welcomed the opposition Congress party’s decision not to oppose it.

“The knowledge has dawned on the Congress leaders after 75 years. They are behaving as if they have a soft corner for Savarkar now,” he stated.
