Manish Tewari says Nehru sent forces to annex Hyderabad, does not even mention Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel

It is a known fact that Sardar Patel was behind the decision to use force to annex Hyderabad, as Nehru didn't want to use force

A day after Rajya Sabha approved a bill to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories, the Lok Sabha began the discussion on the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill on Tuesday. Yesterday the President had also issued an order scrapping the Article 35A, and rendering Article 370 ineffective, thereby ensuring full integration of the state with India.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah moved the presidential order issued under Article 370 and the bill to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories in Lok Sabha.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha on the matter, Congress leader Manish Tewari made shocking statements when he credited Former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru instead of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel for the accession of Hyderabad into the Indian Union despite the fact that Nehru did not contribute to historic act.

Recounting the contentious state’s history, Congress leader Manish Tiwari said, “It is important today that we look back when India gained independence on 15 August 1947, the states were asked to choose between India and Pakistan. But, there was a conflict over three states — Junagarh, Hyderabad and Kashmir.”

Tiwari said, “It was Jawaharlal Nehru who sent a force to annex Hyderabad to be part of India,” said Tewari without even acknowledging the name of Sardar Patel, who was behind the success of Operation Polo, which resulted in the surrender of Hyderabad Nizam to the state of India.

After the partition and independence of India, most princely states had chosen to merge with either India or Pakistan. But the wealthy state Hyderabad ruled by Nizam was an exception, which had decided to remain an independent state. The Nizam hoped to maintain the same relation with Independent India that it was maintaining with British India, but with one exception, without the provision for stationing Indian troops in the states. Although Sardar Vallavbhai Patel favoured the use of force to annex Hyderabad, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was in favour of talks, and therefore India had signed the Standstill Agreement with the Nizam, maintaining the same relationship like before.

But soon after Hyderbad started violating the terms of the agreement, like giving a secret loan to Pakistan, interfering with Indian road and train communication etc. He had also raised an informal army named Razakars, which had become a threat to India.

Therefore the government of India had decided to annex Hyderabad by using invading the state. It is a known fact that Sardar Patel was behind this decision, as Nehru didn’t want to use force on Hyderabad.
