Jawaharlal Nehru was a criminal, says Shivraj Singh Chouhan
BHOPAL: Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister and senior BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan has made a strange comment, terming first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, a criminal'.
Chouhan said that Nehru had committed a sin and it was because of him that India lost part of Kashmir to Pakistan. After the statement was reported, Congress leaders expressed outrage.
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said that Chouhan was not even a dust at Nehru's feet. Kamal Nath, the MP chief minister, said that Chouhan's statement was objectionable and it was condemnable that decades after his death, Nehru was being targeted unfairly.
