BJP MP Giriraj Singh on December 14 slammed Rahul Gandhi over his jibe on Veer Savarkar during rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan. He said that he cannot be Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. "Savarkar endured torture in cellular jail but in Nehru family nobody endured torture in cellular jail, putting Gandhi surname doesn't mean that you're Gandhi." Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi said that his name is Rahul Gandhi not Rahul Savarkar, hence he will not apologise for speaking truth. "I was told in Parliament by BJP yesterday 'Rahul, you gave a speech. Apologise for that.' I was told to apologise for something which is right. My name is not Rahul Savarkar. My name is Rahul Gandhi. I will never apologise for truth," said Rahul Gandhi.
