Nehru 'original sinner', favoured China for UNSC seat, says Jaitley
NEW DELHI: Hitting back at the Congress, finance minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was the "original sinner" who favoured China over India for permanent membership into the United Nation Security Council.
"The original mistake, both on Kashmir and China, was committed by the same person," said Jaitley while quoting a letter written by Nehru to chief ministers on August 2, 1955.
Jaitley, who heads the publicity committee of the BJP for the ensuing general elections, has quoted a part of the letter.
"Pt. Nehru's infamous letter to Chief Ministers' dated August 2, 1955, states 'Informally, suggestions have been made by the United States that China should be taken into the United Nations but not in the Security Council, & that India should take her place in the Security Council.
"..We cannot, of course, accept this as it means falling out with China and it would be very unfair for a great country like China not to be in the Security Council," he said in a series of tweets.
Taking a jibe at Rahul Gandhi, Jaitley asked, "Will the Congress President tell us who the original sinner was?"

I see many people, historians, leaders praising contribution of mr Nehru in shaping today India. since this family ruled india for more than 50 years, they carefully distorted history, removed and erased the names of actual fre m fighters contributions and looted this country. just check in last 70 years where are Russia, china, japan and Israel.

Patel was the first choice of parliamentary committees of Congress but Nehru enjoyed the Goodwill of Gandhi and so he was made the prime minister
70 years back China was behind us and now China is 50 years ahead of US
it's all because of Congress that Rafale was not purchased for 10 years and in the last year this shamelessly said that they have no money left

Nehru did not commit only sin of getting China into Un. Rather he did numerous such stupidities. Western countries wanted India to be in UN, but, Nehru turned down that gesture and pleaded for China''s admission to UN. India got fre m earlier than China and was better than China in all respects being a de acy . Then Nehru conceded on Tib to China. Before that Nehru stopped advancing Indian forces in Kashmir to throw out Paki intruders and took the matter to UN.

Yes Mr.Jaitley is very right . Originally UNSC seat was offered to India but Mr. Nehru passed on to China . Slogan at that time was Hindi-Chini bhai bhai .Mr. Nehru wanted to prove his point . Hence this generosity at the cost of India's privilege .

Nehru didn't give only UN SC seat to China in a plate, he also ensured giving Kashmir to Pak, Hyderabad to Pak (though Sardar Patel did not let him succeed in that nefarious design), 3 Indian river waters for ever to Pak.
