#Nehru failed #JammuKashmir & so did #SardarPatel. Abuse me, troll me but I'm certain(with facts,of course) that Patel played second fiddle when it came to J&K

For long, a propaganda has been carved to portray #Maharaja in a bad light by #Delhi
I'll prove my assertion

1. When GG Lord Mountbatten met #Maharaja in June 1947, he asked the latter to accede to either #India or #Pak but also gave a clear hint that if #Maharaja decided to accede with #Pak, it'll not be treated as an unfriendly act by the STATES DEPTT(and in turn, Patel)
2 Remember, this was also the time when #Gilgit lease was terminated. Locals in cahoots with their British masters mounted trouble in #Gilgit. #Mountbatten knew this. Patel again, didn't do anything. He was too putting his weight behind #Abdullah, who was indifferent to accession

17th September 1948, On this day when Hyderabad state got rid from Islamic Rule of Nizam. Thanks to Sardar Patel

#HyderabadLiberationDay 🇮🇳
On this day in 1948, erstwhile Hyderabad state was completely integrated with India.

Nizam of Hyderabad surrendered to Indian army, people of Hyderabad got independence.

Thank you #SardarPatel Ji for liberating Hyderabad from Nizam's rule. #HyderabadLiberationDay

Not Merger,But Liberation - The Nizamian times of terror, riven by rape and rapine, the long decades of death and dishonour, were finally ended by Indian Army that marched into Hyderabad city on September 17, 1948

Weeks before his death on Dec 15, 1950, Sardar Patel wrote two critical letters warning Pandit Nehru and G. S. Bajpai about the dangers that India faced. He mentioned everything from Communists smuggling arms in the north-east to the influence of missionaries on the Naga tribes
to India's unbalanced equation with China. He pointed out that 'there was a lack of firmness and unnecessary apology' in the attitude of the Indian ambassador to China. In fact, he pointed out that often the Indian ambassador to China sounded like the Chinese ambassador to India!
Patel warned Nehru that the prime minister's strategy of championing the cause of China's entry into the United Nations was flawed and 'the Chinese do not regard (us) as their friends'. Patel also warned that Nehru's idea that the Himalayas were a natural barrier between India

🇮🇳wouldn’t have suffered at the hands of @INCIndia for 70yrs had
#SardarVallabhbhaiPatel become our 1st PM!
1946,only 1 of the 16 PCC Presidents voted for #Nehru ,15 for #SardarPatel
#Gandhi used his veto power in favour of #Nehru because he’d threatened to split the Congress!
#Gandhi had a soft corner for #Nehru since the beginning
he had preferred Nehru over #SardarPatel twice for the post of Congress president, in 1929 & 1937.
Nehru made it clear that he’d not play 2nd fiddle to anybody
Gandhi feared that he’d revolt if denied PM’s post!
High Command’s Forced Decision making, Democracy @INCIndia ?
Follies of #Nehru on Kashmir,China proved-
showing utter disregard to overwhelming support from majority of PCCs for #SardarVallabhBhaiPatel
#Gandhi made a blunder by imposing Nehru on Nation weary of Colonial burden!

Ahead of #GujaratElections2017 @HardikPatel_'s CD has gone viral although it is a no-show.

Heres a 《thread》on the original & unspoken (not even in hushed voices) Operation #Snoopgate behind the #SahebTapes
1/ In Nov 2013 @AashishKhetan's Gulail released the #SahebTapes revealing the illegal surveillance of a young woman from Bangalore in 2009 ordered by Amit Shah for his #Saheb. The tapes raised many intriguing questions which the media failed to raise.

2/ Below are some of the obvious questions mainstream media should have raised.

A What necessitated indulgence of ATS CID & even IB (Intelligence Bureau) when only the ATS or even state police could have kept surveillance easily; provided ofcourse she was JUST ordinary citizen?
