J&K neta’s Patel stand at CWC raises eyebrows

NEW DELHI: Senior Kashmir leader Tariq Karra said in the CWC meeting that credit for integrating Jammu and Kashmir with India post-partition should go to first Prime Minister and Congress stalwart Jawaharlal Nehru but in the process ran down Sardar Patel to the annoyance of some party leaders.
According to sources, Karra was lauding the role of the Nehru-Gandhi family in strengthening the nation even as he urged Rahul Gandhi to take the leadership of the party.
In an attempt to emphasise the point, he said while Sardar Patel is credited for the unification of India, the credit should go to Nehru in case of Jammu and Kashmir, as he sought to allude to historical facts.
After partition, Jammu and Kashmir was annexed by India following an attack by the Pakistan army masked as tribals.
The contrast appeared to create an awkward moment in the CWC meeting as it was apparently not liked by others. Three senior leaders interjected to ask him to stick to the subject at hand and not digress. One leader even remarked that Patel was more than Kashmir and there were events like police action in Hyderabad.
Karra went on to say that the Gandhi family had to assume the leadership of the party, and the country depended on it.
In an interesting turn, Karra also rounded off the meeting by jumping in and demanding that the gathering raise hands if it agreed that Rahul should immediately take over as party president. The demand invited murmurs from the gathering with some even dubbing it as embarrassing.
