The revolutionary legacy of freedom fighters, like Bhagat Singh, was being appropriated by communal elements who had no stake in India's struggle for independence, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said on Thursday. Vijayan said that remembering Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru on the occasion of 'Shaheed Diwas' was a "political act" and urged progressive forces in the country to unite to realise the dream of an egalitarian India.

"Remembering #BhagatSingh, Sukhdev & Rajguru on this #ShaheedDiwas is a political act as their revolutionary legacy is being appropriated by communal elements who had no stake in our freedom struggle. Progressive forces should unite to realise their dream of an egalitarian India," he tweeted.

The Kerala CM's remarks, on Twitter, came on the occasion of 'Shaheed Diwas' -- the day when the three freedom fighters were hanged to death by the British back in 1931.
