Krishna Menon & Sardar Patel

Congress is very peeved with Modi for claiming the legacy of Sardar Patel and honoring him by his proposed massive statue Project. In this context the following excerpt from a Khushwant Singh 90s interview about his days working as a PRO under Krishna Menon , India's High Commisioner in UK during our early years of independence is revealing " When Panditji came he (Krishna Menon) would see that I spent a lot of time with Panditji alone and he would brief me on what to say in his praise because the Indian Press was always gunning for him(KM). And you know I lost respect. I saw letters he wrote to Panditji describing people as PATELITE. I never realized that differences between Sardar Patel and Panditji had come to such a pass that you belonged to one person or the other. One of my seniors Sudhir Ghosh was fired simply because Krishna Menon wrote to Panditji that he was Patelite and by then External affairs had come to Panditji from Sardar Patel" So much about Congress's love for Sardar Patel today !

If modern Indian cricket is to be compared to Indian history, Dhoni is Nehru & Sachin is Sardar Patel.. (Nehru represented India received trophies & cut ribbons while Patel did the hard work of unification & foundation of India. Nehru showed favoritism towards Krishna Menon & Indira. Nehru was involved in several controversies.)
Shri Ramesh Chennithala thinks that only Deputy Chief Ministership with Home portfolio will ensure him status in the Kerala Cabinet. He does not know that when V.K. Krishna Menon joined Nehru's cabinet as Minister without portfolio in 1956, he was seen as the most powerful minister in the Cabinet. A Rajya Sabha member, he was given the Defence portfolio only when he got elected to the Lok Sabha in 1957. It is a different matter that today even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, not to mention Defence Minister A.K. Antony, is a Rajya Sabha member. Shri Chennithala will also do well to read Abul Kalam Azad's autobiography in which he mentions that it was Sardar Patel's insistence on holding the Home Ministry that allowed the Muslim League to capture the Finance portfolio in the interim government. So what happened? The Muslim League finance minister would not sanction money for Congress' ministers, including Patel's, pet schemes. That is precisely why Shri K.M. Mani has no problem in allowing Chennithala become ...
