HYDERABAD: Union minister Kiren Rijiju on Saturday attacked country's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of "letting people of north east down" during the 1962 India-China war, while accusing the Congress of "forgetting" the "true heroes" Subhash Chandra Bose and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
"After 1947, more than 565 princely states were brought together by Sardar Patel but he did not get credit; those who failed, unsuccessful, they kept on writing history," the minister of state for home, hailing from Arunachal Pradesh, said at a function organised by the BJP on the occasion of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel jayanti celebrations here.
He said the Chinese seized his village during the war in 1962 and reached even up to Assam, while Nehru assured people of the region, then known as North East Frontier Agency (NEFA), that "we will save you" but later announced "surrender" to Chinese on All India Radio and "he (Nehru) said tata, bye, bye and left us".
after spending six month in kashmir, i also think that Kashmir issue is also gift of Mr Nehru
Nehru let the whole of India down. He was warned by Sardar Patel years in advance regarding possible Chinese attack

Government should declassify Henderson Brooks–Bhagat Report on Indo- China 1962 war so that the people may know the truth
The Congress has done all kind of damage to our country and Mr. Nehru was one of them. Their followers are still doing the same activities.
Modi's regime will reveal many more such suppressed history with time made by Congress.
India is a weakling compared to Pakistan. Forget about China. If Pakistanians start piss!ng on India it will wash away.
Thank you for bringing the history to everyone's notice. we have been taught incorrect history cause it was written by the writers of the ruling party. Congress mukt Bharat a must to realise true freedom of Indians
Nehru was a weak PM and totally failed to defend in 1962 war. Nehru's cousin Lt. Gen. Kaul was head of eastern command. But he got so scared that got sick with loose motions and had to be replaced. How could you expect this family to fight and sacrifice lives to defend borders ?
Stop living in the past and tell us what you are doing and plan to do in the future.
…..and Kiren Rijiju has entire Northeast down by saying people of Northeast loves to break the laws.

The biggest truth is that the North East Frontier wasn't even India's territory. India shall return it to Tibet.
Nehru was dead sure that US air force will come for the help of Blackie army which was proves just a lara-lappa. The punga with Chinese was taken on the calculation of US help which never came and Chinese made a murgha out of the Blackies. Same story is being rewritten once again with different characters and bigger size of the goats and sheep.
