Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in a strongly worded letter, has urged PM Narendra Modi to leave the Jawaharlal Nehru memorial complex in Delhi “undisturbed” out of respect for history and heritage.
Jawahar Lal Nehru belongs not just to the Congress but to the entire nation, Dr Singh said in the letter sent on Friday.
Two time prime minister’s letter is spurred by a controversy over the government’s plans for a museum for all prime ministers in the Teen Murti Complex , which houses the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library.
In the letter sent last week, Manmohan Singh invoked former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and said that under the Vajpayee’s six year tenure as PM, There was absolutely no attempt made to change the nature and character of the NMML and the Teen Murti complex in any way. but sadly, that seems to be part of the agenda of the govt of India now, Indian Express quoted.
Dr Manmohan Singh said NMML is “dedicated to the memory of India’s first Prime Minister and the prime architect of the Indian national state, who left behind an indelible imprint on our country and indeed on the world.” his distinctiveness and greatness have been acknowledged even by his opponents and rivals, he wrote.
Dr Singh Quoted, Vajpayee’s speech in Parliament when Nehru died. As Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji himself said in his moving speech to Parliament when Panditji passed aways: such a resident may never grace Teen Murti again. that vibrant personality, that attitude of taking even the opposition along, that refined gentlemenliness, that greatness we may not again see in the near future.
In spite of difference of opinion we have nothing but respect for his great ideals, his integrity, his love for the country and his indomitable courage.
The former PM urged PM Narendra Modi to respect this sentiment.
Dr Singh said, The museum must retain its primary focus on Nehru and the freedom struggle because of his unique role having spent almost ten years in Jail between the early 1920s and mid 1940s . No amount of revisionism can obliterate that role and his contribution.
