New Delhi, Sept 02(ANI): Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on September 1 said that there is a need to have an informed conversation about the contribution and ideas of freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar."Veer Savarkar attracts so much conversation. He is one such a very important personality in the Indian history about whom so much is discussed without quality research," Sitharaman said. "Informed conversation (about Veer Savarkar) most of the time missing and that opinionated conversation is also not based on fact or any other fact, and as a result, it becomes based on emotions of strong likes and dislikes," she added. The Union Minister released a book titled 'Savarkar-A Contested Legacy 1924-1966' authored by Vikram Sampath and published by Penguin Viking.
