K Sudhakaran

Kannur: KPCC president K Sudhakaran said on Monday that former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru made truce even with "communalist fascists." Sudhakaran was speaking at an event organised by the Kannur DCC.

The KPCC president was mentioning the ministerialship of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, founder of Jan Sangh, in the first Union cabinet.

“Nehru showed his great democratic consciousness by appointing Ambedkar as law minister. He was willing to include RSS leader Shyama Prasad Mukharjee in his cabinet. He made truce even with communalist fascists. There was no opposition leader in the parliament when Nehru was in power as no party had enough members. But Nehru made communist party leader AK Gopalan the Leader of Opposition,” Sudhakaran said. The Congress leader added that Nehru was of the opinion that there should be someone to criticise the government.

Mukharjee was the first minister of industry and supply. He later had a fallout with Nehru and quit the cabinet to form the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, the predecessor of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
