Mumbai: In a major embarrassment for the Congress party, which is celebrating its 131st foundation day on Monday, some controversial articles have appeared in its mouthpiece criticising Sonia Gandhi and questioning the decisions of Jawaharlal Nehru – the former prime minister and party’s biggest icon.
As per reports, an article, which appeared in the December issue of “Congress Darshan” which is published from Maharashtra, claims that Sonia Gandhi’s father was a member of the fascist forces in Italy.
The article further says that Sonia Gandhi became Congress president 62 days after becoming a member and made a failed attempt to form government.
Another article in the same issue of “Congress Darshan” questions Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s decisions, saying had he taken into consideration the views of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on Kashmir, the situation would have been different.
Senior Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam, who is the editor of ”Congress Darshan”, is under attack for this goof-up. Nirupam has, however, clarified that that he does not look into its day-to-day functioning.
