Nehru rejected the proposal to merge Nepal into India – Former President Pranab Mukherjee

Given his treacherous policies and decisions, Nehru is nothing less than a culprit to a nation! Nehru’s treacherous policies must be exhibited in the parliament and taught to students in school as well. As a result, people will learn from history and won’t elect such leaders to power again!

Nepal had offered to join the Indian team in 1947. . .
Some Nehru’s blunders

  1. Approving the partition of India
  2. Failure to declare India as ‘Hindu-Rashtra’ post partition
  3. Unnecessarily taking the Kashmir issue into the UN after Pakistan’s attack in 1948, even though India was in the winning position
  4.  Letting go of the UNSC permanent seat, and gifting it to China
  5. Failure to check China’s illegal annexation of Tibet
  6. Letting China swallow 84,000 sq. meters of Indian territory while living in the dream bubble of ‘Hindi Chini bhai bhai’

New Delhi – Former President Pranab Mukherjee, in his autobiography ‘The Presidential Years’, claimed that former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru played an important role in establishing democracy in Nepal just after the monarchy began. Pranab Mukherjee wrote that Raja Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah had proposed to Nehru that he should merge Nepal into India and it should be made into a province, but Nehru rejected the proposal. He also said that if Indira was PM, she wouldn’t have let the opportunity go and that Nehru could have followed the same policy as in the case of Sikkim merger.

Pranab Mukherjee wrote in his book that PM Modi should listen to the voices of disagreement and speak often in Parliament. He should make use of the parliament as a platform to address the nation, communicate with the people and to pacify the opposition. PM’s presence makes a huge difference in the functioning. President Mukherjee has written that during the UPA era, he was in touch with the opposition leaders of the NDA. Such connections were useful while addressing various complex issues.
