“He was kept in a jail in Srinagar following which his health deteriorated and he died under suspicious circumstances. His mother requested Nehru for an inquiry into the death of her son, but Nehru did not allow it to happen. This shows Congress’ undemocratic face. No one knows how he died,” Nadda stated.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and prime BJP leaders paid tributes to Mookerjee on his beginning anniversary and contributions in direction of India’s improvement and its unity.
Nadda stated Mookherjee opposed the “appeasement politics” of Jawaharlal Nehru and if immediately Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and Bengal are an inseparable a part of India it was due to his efforts.
It is an honour to have a good time the day at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP authorities has abrogated Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. “It is because of Syama Prasad Mookerjee that Bengal and Punjab are with India. Otherwise, they might have gone to Pakistan throughout Partition. He opposed the appeasement politics of Nehru however the Congress has a nasty behavior of stifling democratic voices.
“When their ideals did not match, he resigned from Nehru’s cabinet. He questioned the reason behind special rights being given to Jammu and Kashmir through Article 370,” Nadda stated additionally attacking the Trinamool Congress authorities over the “mismanagement of coronavirus cases” and “politicisation of education”.
“The trend is worrisome for Bengal. We must dedicate ourselves to restore education in Bengal back to its glorious standards,” he stated.
Nadda stated on one hand there was Mookerjee who fought for a united India, protecting his beliefs and rules above something, and on the opposite, there was the TMC authorities “clinging to power by any means”.
“Criminalisation of politics has scaled new heights, now we all hear about cut money….we have to cut to size these leaders, restore the glory of Bengal and remove this government,” he stated.
