Appoints envoy to negotiate with RSS
MUMBAI, JULY 16, 2012 : Kumar Ketkar who is facing court case for his defamatory articles published against RSS; has finally appointed veteran RSS ideologue & journalist Sudhir Jogalekar as a special envoy to open dialogue with RSS for withdrawal of court cases against him filed by RSS workers.
According to Jogalekar-Ketkar’s new formula, Ketkar will tender written apology and then RSS should withdraw the cases. Sudhir Jogalekar is trying his best to convince RSS leaders on this new compromise formula, to finish legal actions against Ketkar, but he failed to get positive response.
On the contrary RSS leaders warned in Mumbai that few more cases are in conduit against Kumar Ketkar and his new employer Divya Bhaskar group & notices has been already issued to Agarwal brothers of DB Group.
RSS state executive outrightly rejected Ketkar’s request of halting legal action saying that Ketkar must pay for his baseless and stupid allegations against RSS.
Also when Sudhir Jogalekar contacted RSS workers from Dapoli, involved in the case, all have suggested him to raise the matter with RSS top brass. Earlier senior journalist Dilip Karambelkar tried to open dialogue between RSS & Ketkar which miserably failed due to tough stand of RSS leaders.
Now it is interesting to see how Jogalekar achieves the success.
Kumar Ketkar a journalist of Maharashtra, the Government bestowed the Padmashri Award on him. In recent times in Maharashtra, Loksatta has become one of the favorite newspapers of informed readers. Kumar Ketkar is the mind behind the content design of this newspaper.
