Nehru responsible for Indo-Pak partition: Jaswant
After incurring the wrath of the BJP, and getting expelled from the party for his pro-Jinnah comments, former Indian foreign affairs minister and expelled leader Jaswant Singh is now raising the hackles of Congress with his Nehru bashing comments.
In an interview to a Pakistani News Channel, Singh courted controversy yet again with his scathing comments against the first Indian PM, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel.
Singh attacked Nehru's Tryst with destiny speech, saying that it smacked of double standards as he talked of secularism, when he himself along with Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel contributed to dividing the country on grounds of faith.
Singh also added that Nehru himself admitted to his so called mistake in his later years, that he too was responsible for dividing India.
