I don't think 47 damaged the psyce like 66 did. As Minister for Rehabilitation in the days immediately after thePartition of India, Kairon handled the task of resettlement of millions of refugees who had migrated from West Punjab. Over three million people were re-established in East Punjab in new homes and often in new professions, in a very short period of time. Partap Singh Kairon was a man of vision. He laid the base on which Punjab prospered. In his role in implementing land reforms, the late leader established the Punjab Agricultural University, which played a key role in the Green Revolution. He also placed Punjab on the industrial map of the country. He was behind the creation of the city of Chandigarh and the industrial township ofFaridabad(in present-day Haryana). Kairon made primary and middle school education free and compulsory. He opened three engineering colleges and a polytechnic in each district. He was responsible for establishing much of the state's basic infrastructure in terms of irrigation, electrification and roads. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partap_Singh_Kairon -- After his assassination look what vultures did. 3 generations of Hindus have been fed by his hands, as till 90s majority of wheat & rice came from double partitioned Punjab. Will be tough to re unite but atleast his blood again rules it, even if from across Satluj. --- I think if media is controlled, leaders can emerge again. Even wiki article says he was alleged to be corrupt. Lol JNU walas dadas & nanas ate from his hands but 'corrupt'. Please don't close this thread, let's see where it goes.
