“Congress Darshan” or “Congress Darpan”?

It is said that the truth always comes out inadvertently. In a rare slip of the pen, the Congress party’s inhouse magazine “Congress Darshan” turned into “Congress Darpan” by showing it the mirror.  In its latest issue published on the occasion of 131st Foundation Day of the Congress party, the mouthpiece wrote articles criticizing Nehru for his "inept" handling of the Kashmir problem, adding that India would not have faced so many problems if the first PM had listened to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. On Sardar Patel, the article said from the correspondence between him and Nehru, it was clear that on major policies, there were strong differences between them. Had Nehru listened to Patel, the situation in Kashmir, China, Tibet and Nepal would have been better, the write-up said. In 1950, Patel had sent a letter to Nehru alerting him on his policies on China and Tibet, and had specifically stated that China's policy lacked credibility. Patel also opposed Nehru’s move of taking the Kashmir issue to the UNO. It also added that Patel was instrumental in reconstructing the historic Somnath temple despite opposition of Nehru. On the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, the write-up elaborated on her education and career. It said she was born in a small village in Italy and her father Stefano Maino was a member of the Italian fascist forces that fought against the Russian army. In another article, it said that Sonia became a primary member of the party in 1997 and became its chief in less than 62 days. Subsequently, it said Sonia made an unsuccessful attempt to form the government at the Centre.

It has always been the characteristic of Congress party to call the historical truths as  lies and distort history to projects lies as facts. The article actually exposed the well-researched historical truths as to how Nehru handled the economic and political affairs of the country after independence just to promote himself and the cause of his dynasty. But for the current Congress people, Congress’s history starts from Nehru and ends with Rahul Gandhi via Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.

By 1946, it had become quite clear that India’s independence was only a matter of time.  An interim government was to be formed, headed by the Congress president as Congress had won the maximum number of seats in the 1946 elections. All of a sudden, the post of Congress president became very crucial as it was this very person who was going to become the first Prime Minister of independent India. The last date for the nominations for the post of the President of Congress, and thereby the first Prime Minister of India, was April 29, 1946.  And the nominations were to be made by 15 state/regional Congress committees of that time. In that process, 12 out of 15 Congress committees nominated Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel  but not a single one nominated Nehru's name.  So Gandhi conveyed this to Nehru and tried to make him understand the reality. A shell-shocked Nehru was defiant and made it clear that he would not play second fiddle to anybody. Nehru coerced Gandhi into supporting him by saying that if he splits the Congress, the entire independence plan would go awry as the British would get an excuse in delaying independence by raising the question as to who should be handed over the reins of power, Congress with Nehru or Congress minus Nehru. So Gandhi thought that it would be safe to ask Sardar Patel for making the sacrifice than to reason with a power-smitten Nehru. In fact, he had commented that Nehru had gone power-mad. Gandhi always knew that Sardar Patel would never defy him. So, he instructed Acharya J B Kriplani to get some proposers for Nehru from the Congress Working Committee (CWC) members despite knowing fully well that only Pradesh Congress Committees were authorized to nominate the president. When Gandhi told Patel to voluntarily step aside from the race for Congress president, he readily agreed. When Dr Rajendra Prasad heard of Sardar Patel’s withdrawal of nomination, he was disappointed and remarked that “Gandhi had once again sacrificed his trusted lieutenant in favour of the glamorous Nehru”. Gandhi’s this decision proved too costly for the nation as thereby Gandhi  introduced the concept of forced decisions by the so-called ‘high-command’ in Congress, which is now being followed by this political party for every decision making.  If Congress today says that nobody should doubt the wisdom of Gandhi in making Nehru the PM over Patel, then can they also explain why they forget the wisdom of same Gandhi who said that Congress should have been disbanded after India’s independence?

Yes, it’s a fact that had Patel been our first PM, Kashmir and other such problems would have never existed today alongwith a particular minority community appeasement policy. Patel opposed Nehru’s plan for reservation for Muslims in the parliament which resulted in the then Govt. withdrawing such a proposal. He wanted all communities to forget their religion & first become Indian with their undivided loyalty to the nation. Patel was brutally honest and said that people belonging to the minority community in the country should not try to ride on two horses. Patel also thought that the onus was on Muslims to defeat suspicions about the actions of some of their co-religionists in the pre-partition days. It is well known how Nehru had treated a senior leader like Patel during his tenure, which has been documented by the people who worked with both Nehru and Patel at that time.  It was the exemplary skills of Sardar Patel,  which forced all the 550 Princely States to merge with Independent India. But still Sardar Patel, the then Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister of India, was insulted, humiliated and disgraced by the then Prime Minister, Nehru, during a Cabinet meeting. “You are a complete communalist and I’ll never be a party to your suggestions and proposals,” Nehru shouted at Patel during a crucial Cabinet meeting to discuss the liberation of Hyderabad by the Army from the tyranny of the Razakkars, the then Nizam’s private army. “A shocked Sardar Patel collected his papers from the table and slowly walked out of the Cabinet room. That was the last time Patel attended a Cabinet meeting. He also stopped speaking to Nehru since then”, writes MKK Nair, a 1947 batch IAS officer who worked closely with Sardar and VP Menon his secy., in his memoirs “With No Ill Feeling to Anybody”.  Nehru was against sending Indian forces to liberate Hyderabad and tried to scuttle Patels plan and instead wanted to take this issue to UN. Had Patel not acted tough and inspite of Nehru’s objection liberated Hyderabad during the “Operation Polo”, we would have been having another Kashmir right in the heart of India today. The formation of North East Frontier Service under the Ministry of External Affairs by Nehru and the removal of the affairs of the Jammu & Kashmir from the Ministry of Home Affairs are the major reasons behind the turmoil in both the regions. This was done by Nehru to curtail the wings of Sardar Patel.  We would not have the Kashmir problem if Nehru had listened to the advice of  Patel and the then Army Chief General Kariappa to delay taking his complaint to the UN for three days so that the Indian Army could drive out the Pakistani invaders from Kashmir. Despite this Nehru referred Kashmir issue to UN, Patel totally opposed this and said "it is purely an internal matter and why should we refer this to UN". Patel also said, "if only Nehru had listened to my advice, not a single Pakistani would have been allowed to stay inside Kashmir even for a single day. Patel raised this issue in the Congress Working committee and Nehru & Patel were at loggerheads.  History has proved it beyond doubt that had Patel been the PM in place of Nehru, the country would not have faced the humiliation of 1962 war. Days before his death, Patel had written a letter to Nehru warning him about China’s nefarious designs but Nehru didn’t pay any attention to that letter.

Sardar Patel reconstructed the famous Somnath temple against the wish of Nehru without any state funding and when Rajendra Prasad, the then President wished to attended inauguration of the renovated temple, Nehru objected. But still Rajendra Prasad went ahead but Nehru was absent. However,  later on Nehru wanted to renovate the Babri Masjid at Government expense, a proposal Sardar had turned down as the  Home Minister. Sardar told Nehru that the Babri Masjid’s renovation was different from reconstruction of the Somnath Temple for which a trust was set up that raised nearly 30 lakh for the purpose. Government money was not spent - following which Nehru had to drop the idea (Patel’s daughter Maniben’s diary notes on September 20, 1950).

The consequences of Nehru becoming the first PM of India and the mess he created in India social, economic and political spheres have been tragic and the muddle he created still remains far from being sorted out. The nexus between the Congress led, self-proclaimed liberal-leftist-jihadi sympathiser-secular class, supported by the caste based political parties and the plethora of foreign funded NGOs, who play one community against another in the name of  protection of human rights and poverty alleviation to ensure Congress continues to retain the power to rule India as it suits their interests. Historically, they have together tricked, suppressed, discredited any voice that tried to challenge them - Subhash Bose disappeared,  Sardar Patel side lined,  RSS became Gandhi's killer, Shastri mysteriously died in Tashkent, Jaya Prakash Narayan apparently poisoned in the hospital and now they are running the “intolerance-beef promotion-hindutava bashing Campaign”. They can stoop to any low to retain their stranglehold on power and their not allowing the parliament to functioning for last 2 sessions on one or the other pretext is not coincidental. These forces can do anything to harm Modi as he has risen as the greatest challenger to the rotten dynastic rule, politics of caste & religious  divide, corruption & mis governance and everything else in the name of "secularism" and "pluralism". The congress trickster would do anything to continue the legacy of the dynasty to remain in power. Whoever has written the article has only stated the historical facts and reminded the nation about those true facts. Unfortunately, for the Sonia-Rahul sycophants, it is a sacrilege that the truth has been exposed about their dear leaders.

Does India need enemies, when we have Congress & its allies?

While all the political parties are united in Pakistan in welcoming Modi’s sudden visit to Lahore, in India Congress is once again proving that it is the lousiest opposition party ever. Congress is peeved that they have been upstaged. They are peeved that Modi has done something, which they could never imagine and that too after proving to the world that India will only talk to Pakistan on its own terms from a position of strength at a time and place of its choice. There is no doubt anymore that Congress is anti-national and their only interest is to keep the rotten dynasty in power. They only have one concern - how much will their “Queen Mother and Prince” gain in any deal even at the cost of national interest. After what Mani Shankar Iyer and Salman Khurshid did in Pakistan, they have no right even to talk on any issues of national importance.

• It was Congress – who didn’t allow Sardar Patel to intervene in Kashmir & allowed a part of India to be occupied by Pakistan
• It was Congress – who took Kashmir issue to UN and created unending problems for India
• It was Congress – who freed 90 thousand POWs without gaining anything for India
• It was Congress – whose cowardice and appeasement policies gave birth to terrorism in Kashmir
• It was Congress – who allowed Dawood to flee from India & made him the Don operating from Pakistan and later supported Yakub Memon.
• It was Congress - who let 26/11 happen in Mumbai and tried telling us it was RSS handiwork
• It was Congress - who allowed monsters like SIMI and IM to flourish and bomb blasts to happen in India
• It was Congress – who inspite of proofs by international intelligence agencies blamed Samjauta Express Blast on “Hindu terror” & played into the hands of Pakistan
• It was Congress- who to protect Pakistani terrorists, created hurdles for our intelligence agencies
• It was Congress - who ordered our army not to retaliate against Pakistan's ceasefire violation and never acted against Pakistani forces who infiltrated in our territory to behead our brave soldiers, whose leaders even said that our soldier are only meant to die.
• It was Congress - whose leaders like Mani Shankar Iyer openly asked for Pakistan’s help to come back to power by removing Modi & BJP and Salman Khurshid criticised Indian Govt. to impress and appease Pakistan and the anti-national forces in India.

And still Congress expects Indian Foreign and Defence policies to be based on their unsolicited advises, whose ranks are full of Pakistani agents and supporters. In the past one and half years, that they are out of power, no one has seen anything positive from Congress. They seem to have lost their sense of balance and has taken the word ''opposition'' too literally. The Congress party never had a plan to deal with Pakistan strongly, primarily because that would upset their vote bank and the anti-India elements whom they have been patronizing to remain in power. They alongwith a section of Indian media and intellectuals are responsible for denigrating India and making it a soft state. But Modi and Doval are too nationalistic to give away anything to Pakistan even for any personal or electoral gains. And this is acknowledged by the Indian Armed forces and the intelligence agencies. The systematic destruction of India’s internal security apparatus by Congress and its allies during their rule in centre and states can’t be only for vote-bank politics, it has a larger dimension which is evident from the nervousness displayed by this dispensation with regard to ISI or Jehadi terror. After watching words and deeds of Sakeel Ahmed, Digvijaya Singh, Sushil Kr. Shinde etc. during UPA tenure, Salman Kurshid’s behaviour during and after his tenure as India’s foreign Minister and now what Mani Shankar Aiya told openly in Pakistan, is Congress worried that their age old practice of obtaining the services of the ISI, LeT, Dawood etc. for influencing vote-bank politics in India and winning elections to keep the dynasty in power will be exposed and stopped?

Modi’s Bold Statement – Pakistan is just a small stop in India’s Global Diplomacy

In what took India, Pakistan and the whole world by surprise, PM  Narendra Modi  today made a diplomatic coup by flying into Lahore on his way back from Moscow and Kabul for a two and a half hour stop over to meet Pakistani  PM Nawaz Sharif for a brief bilateral dialogue.  Anybody with a little sense of global politics and diplomacy would admit that this conveys a right message to the international community and caught many in Pakistan and India including the worthless and anti-national Congress party napping. The fact that he made this visit in itself is important inspite of Pakistani Army & ISIS’s plans and Congress &  its allies criticism. But mark my words, it should not be seen as a sudden shift in Modi Govt.’s position vis-à-vis Pakistan. National Security Advisor of India - Ajit Doval, the main adviser to Modi on Foreign and Defence policy doesn’t make any move without deep analysis. It’s very evident since Modi took over as Prime Minister that India has dumped the Congress’s policy of appeasement and cowardice subjugation towards Pakistan. It has been proved beyond doubt  now that India will talk to Pakistan only at a time and place of India’s choice from a position of strength on an agenda selected by it. Till this Govt. came to power Pakistan was calling the shot and humiliated India at every opportunity. Now it’s payback time for India. Pakistan has very well realized it repeatedly - when bilateral meetings were cancelled at the last moment by India, ticked it off during UN summits and strong & massive retaliation to cross border firings by them – that Modi Govt. is very different from the earlier  spineless, cowardly, apologetic and submissive Congress led Indian Govt.  Now after this visit by Modi, Pakistan would be in trouble in the eyes of the International Community if they don’t reciprocate in the right way. But, India still doesn’t expect them to reciprocate and any false step by Pakistan will be India’s victory. So, Modi’s this diplomatic coup is actually to create trouble for Pakistan internationally and project India in the right perspective without conceding anything to Pakistan. And Congress and their allies understand this but don’t want to concede as that will either expose their failure in dealing with Pakistan or upset their constituency of anti-national vote bank.

Gobal diplomacy is more a matter of maneuver & perception then actual facts on the ground and Modi understands it very well. Hence, these “blow hot and blow cold” positions depending on time, place and situation. He just wants to show to the world that India is a large economic and military power  too powerful to be constrained by a small irritant like Pakistan in its plans and designs. India will treat Pakistan and drive its policy towards them as per its own wish and need,  without being bothered by Pakistan’s likes, dislikes or needs. India knows very well that not only Pakistan, but no Islamic state in this world can be a true friend and well-wisher for not only India but any non-Islamic nation in this world. Like USA’s friendship with Saudi Arab or Pakistan, which is not due to any bond of heart, ideology or civilization but due to only economic or political reasons, India also needs to engage with Pakistan only for political and economic reasons but not for developing any brotherhood. No amount of concession and good gesture will change the hearts of Islamic zealots in  Pakistan or for that matter in any Islamic theocratic state. For this first those Islamic states including Pakistan has to move their education and social life away from religion based culture, value system, thinking and behaviour. Till they move to modern and progressive education and social system based on respect for all religion, human values and universal good, they can’t be equal and true global nations. Their citizens are made to believe that only lives of people of their religion has value and all others are Kafers meant to be enslaved and slaughtered. Pakistani nation state is based on hate towards India, its culture and civilization. We are not dealing with a civilized, rational and progressive country and people. So all rational thinking, nationalistic and patriotic Indians should stop their idiotic pipe dreams that a jihadi Pakistan will guarantee a safe and peaceful India. Trust Pakistan at your own peril and this is realized by Modi & Doval. This Islamic theocratic state and humanism don’t go together. Irrespective of whatever we offer or do, they will continue their war of bleeding India through thousand cuts. Hence, Modi Govts. long term objective and interest is the negation of this failed rogue state for our own benefit and the benefit of a peaceful and civilized world order. And in this endeavour, creating difficult situations for Pakistan - bilaterally and internationally, humiliating and defeating them in every move, every forum, every encounter – economically, politically, militarily is the mission of this Govt. And Modi’s this visit to Lahore is part of that plan only. Pakistan is just a small stop in the Global Diplomacy of Modi’s India.
