New Delhi, June 4: Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government is planning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1965 war with Pakistan. According to NDA sources, Modi asked Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar to supervise the programme which will be held in Delhi.
While the preparations for the grand event are on in the national capital, experts believe that Congress may go through a difficult phase, yet again.
According to sources, a discussion on the post-war events in 1965 and Shastri's mysterious death will be held during the upcoming programme in the national capital.
Many raised eyebrows to know that the discussions will be held on such controversial subjects, such as Shastri's sudden death in Tashkent and reasons behind his decision to go for ceasefire and wanted Indian Army to give a final push to capture whole Jammu and Kashmir and Lahore to teach Pakistan a final lesson.
Meanwhile, media reports highlighted that Shastri's son Sunil Shastri had claimed that he had found blue spots and cut marks on the abdomen of the former prime minister. However, the then media reports had said that no postmortem was conducted on Shastri.
Now, during the programme in Delhi, debates and discussions might be held on such controversial topics which UPA government had avoided during its regime.
According to sources, Modi government at the Centre asked for tableaux, exhibitions, processions, public lectures and film shows in the national capital on Rajpath, Janpath and around the India Gate to mark the 50th anniversary of 1965 war.
