Kangana Ranaut Triggers Controversy on Birth Anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel With Her Remark on Mahatma Gandhi

Kangana Ranaut keeps on making statements that are sure to trigger controversies. Today on the birth anniversary of Sardar ValIabhbhai Patel the Queen actress remembered the Iron Man of India. But at the same time, she questioned the decision of Mahatma Gandhi to make Jawaharlal Nehru the first prime minister of the country.

Kangana believes that the country suffered because of this sacrifice of Patel. In her post the Tanu Weds Manu actress penned, “He sacrificed his most deserving and elected position as the First Prime Minister of India just to please Gandhi because he felt Nehru spoke better English, #SardarVallabhbhaiPatel did not suffer but Nation suffered for decades, we must shamelessly snatch what is rightfully ours.”

Further elaborating on Patel’s decision to give up the prime ministership, Kangana Ranaut said that the country deeply regretted his sacrifice. She wrote, “Wishing India’s Iron man #SardarVallabhbhaiPatel a happy anniversary, you are the man who gave us today’s akhand Bharat but you took your great leadership and vision away from us by sacrificing your position as a Prime Minister. We deeply regret your decision.”

In her follow-up post, the actress slammed Mahatma Gandhi for choosing a weaker mind like Nehru for the post of prime minister. She wrote, “He is the real Iron Man of India, I do believe Gandhi ji wanted a weaker mind like Nehru that he could control and run the nation by keeping him in the forefront, that was a good plan but what happened after Gandhi got killed was a big disaster #SardarVallabhbhaiPatel.”

Twitter Users Are Divided Over Kangana Ranaut’s Post

Twitter users were divided over this post from Kangana. While some believed that each leader has in some way contributed towards the progress of India, another one said that the actress has a lot of courage discussing such issues on a social platform.

A user wrote, “For the first time I have seen somebody speaking this loud…even I do believe that Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru played tricks so that they can hold gov position… India’s situation would have been much better if Sardar would have been there. #SardarVallabhbhaiPatel.”

Another user said, “Each leader has their own contribution towards India we have now, knowingly or unknowingly. Let’s not try to judge those leaders for their failings but let’s remember them for what they stand for and their contribution. This may not be popular but I am glad partition happened.”

Here are some more reactions.
