New Delhi: Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Brinda Karat on Wednesday said Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh had spoken 'like an RSS pracharak' when he demanded that the word 'adhinayak' be dropped from the national anthem.

Karat also termed the demand as a 'huge insult' to Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, who penned the national anthem.

'This is a huge insult to Rabindranath Tagore, Rajasthan Governor spoke like an RSS pracharak,' Karat told ANI.
