At a `Meet the Press' programme, Dr. Sahgal said the Gujarat Government did not call the Army in time, did not deploy them properly or give them adequate orders and thus aided the violence.
She said it was a different matter whether she won or lost but her candidature demonstrated even to the outside world that there was a voice in India which was secular and anti-nuclear. The Indian National Army of Subhash Bose of which she was an officer, had lost on the battlefield but its action brought the country freedom.
To a question, she said the communists had opposed the action of Subhash Bose because they did not have enough information and were victims of British propaganda.A group of ABVP activists shouted slogans against her and tried to obstruct her car at the venue for her alleged remarks against Veer Savarkar. Some of them clashed with CPI (M) activists. She denounced their action and said they were bullies and cowards.
