I am of the Firm Opinion that the Gandhi,Nehru Duo in hindsight did more Damage to Us than bought us Good. Consider some of the Blunders these Duo did 1) Gandhi Okayed Usage of Indian Soldiers to fight for British in WW1. The War was no way related to Us and we lost so many Soldiers 2) Gandhi lent his Support to Khilafat Movement because of his Appeasement towards Muslims. A Muslim Leader in Turkey was no way related to Us 3) Gandhi didnt approve of Patel or even Subash CHandra Bose for the PM Post. Patel had the support of 12 out of 17 State Committee while Nehru, his Rival had none. Patel was known to be a strong Leader with Mass Popular support. Only because of Gandhi this guy Nehru became. 4) Gandhi's Foolish and idealistic Ideas failed to control the Hindu-Muslim Divide and the riots afterwards. There are countless Blunders this Guy did, You are free to contribute Now take this Guy Nehru 1) A Western Educated Guy with no touch in reality with the Indian Perspective 2) His Blunder on Kashmir is well known. Failure to take tough decisions on Time. Restrained Army when they could have kicked out Pakistanis out of Kashmir for Good. 3) We remained a Poor state despite his Rule for a Long time. Conditions hardly improved 4) He ignored the Military criminally. Our lack of Weapon Modernisation in both Army and Police is his legacy 5) He supported the Abdullahs who didnt support the cause of Indianness at all. 6) Our Inclusion in the third World is his legacy. He could do absolutely nothing to alleviate Poverty. 7) Our Image as a "Soft State" is his legacy. Nehru's comments on Military " During the early days of the Jammu and Kashmir operations Nehru visited the Srinagar airfield and was being briefed by IAF pilots. He was told they were using 500 lb bombs. He at once said this was an excessive use of force and the less powerful 250 lb bomb should be used. He was told the target area was criss-crossed with nullahs and deep valleys and less powerful bombs would be ineffective. Nehru protested that this was a violation of the principle of 'minimum force.' He was tactfully told this was not an aid to a civil power operation but a full-fledged war against aggressors. The principle of minimum force was not relevant in this instance. It was essential for the air force and army to use adequate force while dealing with this enemy. It is significant that the senior military officers who accompanied Nehru seemed to be overawed by the prime minister and kept quiet. On another occasion, Nehru and his entourage were waiting at Palam air force station for a VIP to arrive. The prime minister turned to the air chief and pointing to an air force plane parked nearby, asked, 'Why are your planes marked Indian Air Force? Surely no foreign planes could be parked here.' The air chief mumbled that he would look into the matter. A young air force officer standing nearby intervened and said, 'All air forces follow the practice of using national names. Thus we have the Royal Canadian Air Force, the French Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force and so on.' Nehru seemed taken aback at this response, turned to the air chief and said, 'Do look into this.' Later, after the VIPs had departed, the air chief scolded the young officer, telling him he should guard against talking about policy matters that were above his head. " How can we prevent the entry of fools like them in the Future.
