"I worked wid Mother Teresa for a few months at Nirmal Hriday ashram in Kolkata. She was a noble soul. Pl spare her," Kejriwal tweeted. Addressing a function in Bharatpur in Rajasthan Monday, Bhagwat said Mother Teresa's service to the poor was aimed at converting them to Christianity.
"People like Mother Teresa did good work and service. But the aim was to convert the poor to Christianity. This kind of service is devalued if conversions are done in the name of service or work," he said. His comments triggered a controversy. However, the RSS chief said the statement was misattributed.
