Jaipur: The Rajasthan unit of BJP on Tuesday
dubbed Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot`s remark on the speech of
senior RSS leader K C Sudarshan as "an example of despair
mentality" and asked him to broaden his knowledge of history.
"Whatever Sudarshan said on the Kashmir issue was based
on historical facts, be it about wrong decisions and policies
of Congress party or other reasons due to which Kashmir
problem has arisen," BJP state president Arun Chaturvedi said.

"Gehlot should advance his knowledge on history. The
language he used for Sudarshan is condemnable and shows his
despair mentality," Chaturvedi said, claiming that the facts
talked about by the RSS leader had been raised by several
political analysts from time to time.
Sudarshan had on Sunday said in a lecture here that the
Kashmir problem had arisen because of wrong decisions of the
Congress party and Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru.

Reacting to the remarks, Gehlot said in a statement,
"Communal face of the RSS has once again come before the
public and Sudarshan is now making baseless statements just to
divert public attention."
