    Do not wish to hear about him, who instituted Mogul style dynastic rule with his great grand son trying to be what Jawahar Lal Nehru was. Worst of all he institutionalized socialism, the root cause of corruption and bureaucratic inefficiencies. Those who are lionizing him in fact are telling you that they like their high and exalted status.

    In reply to karanbest4, I would say that Jawahar Lal Nehru planned his daughter Indira Gandhi takeover well in advance. First, he asked Indira Gandhi to be First Lady of his household. She very willingly abandoned her husband Feroze Gandhi to live with her father and act as First Lady. Then very cleverly he manipulated her appointment as President Of the Congress for a period of two years, when a lot of experienced and capable leaders were waiting for an opportunity for the job. This all firmed up Indira Gandhi's hold over the party. When he appointed Lal Bahadur Shastri as his shoe, he was sure that Indira Gandhi be made as Information and broadcasting minister. She gained government experience and kept her father informed on day to day affairs. When Nehru died, the job went to Lal Bahadur Shastri as he had earlier anointed him in his place as cool hand but with very little political base. He was to be dumped in favour of Indira Gandhi. But that opportunity never arose. In 1965 war with Pakistan intervened and three months later, Shastri died in Tashkent. He was not a strong leader, he was so afraid that he had not negotiated well with Ayub Khan.

    After that who was the shoe-in; it was Indira Gandhi.

    Now you get the picture why Nehru started it all that Dynastic rule.

    Only after Nehru's Death did she become Information and broadcasting Minister, i Dont want to argue with you on the fact whether Nehru wanted Be Dynast or not, As it is subjective and everyone Has Rights to have their own Views, In my opinion it was Indira Gandhi which started the Gandhi dynasty as she Had been Betrayed by many Congress Leaders and Had Lost Trust in them, so in solution to that she would give power to her Own Son's Sanjay then Rajiv. But what Hurt me in your Reply was Tat in your view Shastri was a weak leader with no political Base Shastri had Held Ministry of External Affairs,Home Affairs and Railway Affairs, i hope you have heard of When a railway Accident happened in 1956 Shastri Immediately Resigned from the Post, shows his integrity..

    We are discussing Nehru's role in setting up dynastic rule in India.

    He really did?

    Let us not talk about Lal Bahadur Shastri in this conversation. May be another thread, and we will talk about Shastri.

    My Argument is Nehru was A firm Believer in Democracy and to Say that he brought mogul style dynastic role is completely Misreading the History,If it wasn't for Nehru Leading India in its first 15-16 formative years i don't think The map of india would be as we see it now,Nehru was a believer in the instituion of Democracy, As i said Preveiously it was Indira Gandhi that set up the dynastic rule due to her Trust issues with Senior congress leaders.
