The #USA killed #India’s #nuclear physicist #HomiBhabha and Prime Minister #LalBahadurShastri—confessions of Robert Crowley, then second in command of the CIA's Directorate of Operations (in charge of covert operations) recorded in a book by Gregory Douglas.
Via @MeghBulletin
Pertinent to note here that the confession by the CIA officer indicates the #US government in 1966 wilfully murdered 117 civilians on @airindiain flight 101 just so they could kill #HomiBhabha .
An act of State sponsored #terrorism by #WashingtonDC any way you look at it .
A lot of water has flown under the bridge since then . Every nation has national imperatives that overrule previous issues. We've let this slide just as we've let the 1971 Enterprise incident go .

"Embalmed" body of #LalBahadurShastri as it appeared a day after his death, and the embalmed body of Lenin (died 1924). You don’t have to be a forensic pathologist to see that something was wrong. Why did our Govt refuse an autopsy?

AND LEST WE FORGET, THAT HE WAS MURDERED & INDIRA GANDHI WAS BRIMMING WITH JOY WHEN LBS's BODY ARRIVED AT AIRPORT.

Had Shastriji lived for another five or ten years it is highly unlikely that Indira Gandhi would ever have become prime minister and it is
certain that her son would have never occupied that office.
Had LBS been given another five years on earth, there would have been no Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. Had Shastriji lived another five years, Sanjay and Rajiv would almost certainly have been still alive. Sanjay would have
been an entrepreneur & Rajiv Gandhi, retired pilot.
Finally, had Shastriji live another five years, Maino would still be a housewife and Rahul, a middle-level manager in a private sector company & Biyanka without Vadra.”

When the Soviet Aeroflot Illushin-18 carrying #LalBahadurShastri’s body landed in Delhi this day in 1966 at 2.31 pm, everyone looked gloomy and crestfallen. Just about every one.

This is how a crestfallen person looks. Russian Premier Alexei Kosygin Image
Body language experts can tell better, but he is also crestfallen, the man in the suit. Image

“I am just an ordinary man and not a very bright man.”
On this date #LalBahadurShastri passed away of a rather "mysterious" heart attack.
Thread on one of the best PMs of India.
Shastri took over as PM,when India was facing one of it's worst crisis ever. Nehru had passed away due to a heart attack in 1964, the country had faced one of it's worst military defeats to China, 2 years before.
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. He considered himself quite an ordinary man, and was content being in the background. #LalBahadurShastri

This day in 1966 Prime Minister #LalBahadurShastri suddenly died in Tashkent. Hours later, KGB arrested his cook on suspicions of poisoning. The matter was hushed up by Indian government. Hence the continuing burden on our collective consciousness.

Lal Bahadur Shastri ji's orignal name was Lal Bahadur Srivastava. But he dropped his surname since he was against the caste system.
In 1926, he got the title 'Shastri' in Kashi Vidyapeeth University as a mark of scholarly success.

#LalBahadurShastri was 3 months old, he slipped out of his mother's arms into a cowherd's basket at the Ganga ghat. The cowherd, who had no children, took the child as a gift from God & took him home. He's parents lodged a complaint with the police, who traced and returned him.

Today is the day to recall the great tragedy that befell India 52 years ago. For the 1st time in modern world history, a head of government died in a foreign country. Lal Bahadur Shastri’s sudden demise barely two years after his taking over
as the PM shocked D nation so much so that deep down in our collective memory a pain lingers till date.
When Shastri’s body was brought home, his mother, who would die 9 months later, spotted bluish patches on her son. “Mere bitwa ko jahar de diya!” (My son has been poisoned!)
But then, doubts about Shastri’s death had cropped up even in Tashkent. On 11 January, at about 4 am, Ahmed Sattarov, the Russian butler attached to Shastri, was rudely woken up. The butler recalled his nightmare last year in an interview with Russia and India Report:

Today is Lal Bahadur Shastri Birthday
I always feel one of the greatest son of India and his contributions to India gets short changed as Oct 2nd is all about Mohan Das Gandhi
Nehru Gandy ensured we forgot everyone and only remember them
Gandy stayed in Aga Khan palace and acted as if he is so simple and poor
Once Sarojini Naidu said it cost lots of Money to keep Gandhi poo
And about Nehru the less said the better.
He lived like Maharaja on public money and no one asked where do you get that money from ?
In 1963 Ram Manohar Lohia published a pamphlet which said India spent Rs.25000 a day on royal life of Nehru while average indian lived on 3 anna per day (18.75 paisa)

A humble tribute to this great soul. His political leadership during 1965 war will remain his biggest contribution to the nation. His decision to OK crossing IB saved us from a potential 4th Battle of Panipat.

A deeper study of 1965 was will tell you that there was more to it than simply taking Kashmir under Op Gibraltar. It was the last push to undertake a massive re-organization of physical landscape of South Asia. There was a method to madness of 'having tea at Red Fort' statement.
I shudder to think what would've been the outcome had Nehru being the PM during 1965 war!

#LalBahadurShastriJayanti #LalBahadurShastri A thread. I wrote in 2008

The Late Lal Bahadur Shastri, was also born on Oct. 2, in the year 1904 ( does anyone remember any centenery celebrations ??). However, he seems to have been given one of the shortest shrifts.
Born in the year 1904 in Mughalsarai, United Provinces, British India as Lal Bahadur Srivastava.

His father Sharada Prasad was a poor school teacher, who later became a clerk in the Revenue Office at Allahabad.
When Lal Bahadur was three months old, he slipped out of his mother's arms into a cowherd's basket at the ghats of the Ganges.

The cowherd, who had no children, took the child as a gift from God and took him home.

Today is the birthday of one of the great Prime Ministers of India, Late Sh. Lal Bahadur Shashtri. A thread on this great person especially for those who do not know much about this 'little' great man.

“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!

lists.bcn.mythic-beasts.com/pipermail/bitl…
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?
