New Delhi: The Congress party on Monday sacked the content editor of its journal ”Congress Darshan” for publishing controversial articles criticising former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s policy on Kashmir and alleging that Sonia Gandhi’s father was a “fascist soldier”.
 Congress shocked as party mouthpiece slams Nehru, Sonia, praises Sardar Patel-1As per sources, content editor of the journal Sunil Joshi has been sacked by the party.

The Congress party faced embarrassment after an article in the Congress mouthpiece ‘Congress Darshan’ held Jawaharlal Nehru responsible for the present Kashmir situation,  and alleged that if Nehru had accepted Sardar Vallabhai Patel’s foresight, crisis pertaining Kashmir, Tibet and China would have never cropped up.

The article also calls Sonia Gandhi’s father as a “fascist soldier” – leaving the Grand Old Party squirming. The write-up also described how Sonia quickly rose to the position of party president. It describes her early life in great detail, including her “ambition to become an air-hostess”.

“Sonia Gandhi registered as a primary member of the Congress in 1997 and became the party’s president in 62 days. She also made an unsuccessful attempt to form a government,” the article said.
Both these articles, which do not bear the name of their writers, were published in this month’s Hindi edition of ‘Congress Darshan’ as a tribute to the country’s first home minister Sardar Vallabbhai Patel on his death anniversary on December 15.

The controversy forced its editor and Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam to order an inquiry even as he claimed he was unaware of the content.

“I admit the mistake. Inquiry will be initiated against the editorial department which committed the mistake. We will take measures that such a mistake is not repeated,” Nirupam said.
