LK Advani the BJP's margdarshak and most seasoned politician has sparked a massive row. During a speech on the occassion of Yoga Day Advani has admitted that Yoga Day is the brainchild of the RSS. In an impassioned speech Advani in fact linked Yoga Day to RSS's cultural nationalism which he proudly says is gaining ground under the BJP's first majority government. The remarks have led to the opposition attacking the government. The Congress says that Advani's remark confirms that Yoga Day was a communal exercise devised by the RSS to propogate its brand of cultural nationalism. The BJP is on the defensive and has been left red-faced.
