New Delhi: On its 131st Foundation Day, the Congress has put its foot in its mouth, as its Mumbai wing has shocked party loyalists with an exhaustive write-up in its mouthpiece blaming former PM Jawaharlal Nehru and party president Sonia Gandhi.
In the December issue of ‘Congress Darshan’ (Hindi edition), questions are raised on the decision of party icon and India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, for the state of affairs in Kashmir, China and Tibet.
The article clearly states that Nehru should have listened to freedom fighter and former home minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s views on international affairs.
In the past, the party has rarely commented on the historic tussle between the two.
It also criticised party president Sonia Gandhi and said her father was a fascist soldier.
Mr Sanjay Nirupam, editor Congress Darshan said, it's mistake, we are rectifying it.
However, the party said, Congress Darshan is not its mouthpiece.
