Gujarat Govt. bans sale of Jaswant Singh's book in the State

By Super Admin

Gandhi Nagar (Gujarat), Aug.19 (ANI): Narendra Modi-led Gujarat Government on Wednesday banned sale of the expelled Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh book titled-- Jinnah-India, Partition, Independence-in the State.

The Gujarat government blamed Jaswant's book for denigrating the image of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, who was a Gujarati and held in high esteem by people across Gujarat and rest of the India for his role during India's freedom struggle against the British rulers.

Singh observes in his book that Nehru and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel together conceded Pakistan to Jinnah with help from the British.

Patel occupies a pride of place in BJP's historiography with the party eulogising his tough action for the integration of rebellious Hyderabad and Junagarh with the Union, and contrasting it with the Nehru's "blunder" in taking the Kashmir issue to the UN. (ANI)
