Those born in India have two mothers, including Bharat Mata: Bhagwat

Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): After much political heat was generated by the controversy over the ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ slogan, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday said those born in India have two mothers: one biological and the other ‘Bharat Mata’.

He was speaking after inaugurating a three-day ‘vichar mahakumbh’ in Ninnaura here as part of the ongoing Simhasta Kumbh mela on the banks of Kshipra river.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader said India had assimilated all those who came to live here over the centuries.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also present on the occasion.
