Resigned because didn’t want flak against RSS and my party: Kailash Bhatt


Rajasthan BJP spokesman Kailash Nath Bhatt told a news agency on Thursday that he resigned from his position to avoid flak against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Bhartiya Janata Party.

He further advised party workers to be cautious while expressing their views, “Want to advise party-workers that they should be careful when using social media to post their thoughts.”

Bhatt who had recently questioned the Z+ security provided to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat tendered his resignation from the post of party spokesperson on Wednesday.

Earlier on Monday, Bhatt had expressed surprise at Bhagwat’s security level upgradation to Z-plus.
“I don’t know why param pujya Sarsanghachalak ji has been given Z-plus security and whether he has accepted it. God has the responsibility of looking after everyone, then why fear? (Former PM) Indira Gandhi was assassinated by security guards,” he wrote.

Later, he apologised in the comments section of the same post, saying he had spoken with “half and premature” knowledge.
