Modi's Mentors Anantrao Kale, who gifted Gujarat many a school

Narendra Modi writes in this chapter of Juotipunj of Anantrao Kale, the educationist who set up many schools in Gujarat.

But since the RSS did not acknowledge caste, this was not taken seriously. #Gujarat #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticalPlay #RSS #Modi's mentors #Babubhai Oza
