Remembering the 2nd PM of India #LalBahadurShashtri on his Punya Thithi today. Short in build, a giant in stature, a man who handled one of the biggest crisis India faced after 1947 tactfully and gave a fitting reply to Pakistan in the '65 War.
After Nehru , who?” was the question on every one’s lips in 1964, and then the choice fell on #LalBahadurShashtri . At first glance he never seemed like a likely leader, with his unassuming build and soft spoken nature, nor did he ever aspire for power.
#LalBahadurShastri had a formidable task on hand, he had to lead a nation, that was coming to terms with the humiliating rout to China in 1962, a new nation that was facing the issues of poverty, inflation, and more than anything he had to live up to the legacy of Nehru.

“CIA killed both,Shastri & Dr. Homi Bhabha in 1966 Jan”.
-Robert Crowley. CIA-Director of plans, an interview with Gregory Douglas who was asked to publish it Only after his Death!…
Could Crowley’s claim be a fabricated one?
*Just two weeks apart,these 2 unnatural deaths occurred outside India!
* #LalBahadurShashtri had defeated US ally🇵🇰,had refused to shut down India's nuclear program!
*His being in the USSR provided CIA an opportunity to poison him?
*The most powerful agency in the🌍 in 60s,CIA used to routinely assassinate unfriendly foreign leaders!
* An ally of🇮🇳,would the Russians kill #LalBahadurShastri ?
*A political nobody, Indira Gandhi became the PM!
*Could then,the assassination
not be authorized by US President?
