Highly overrated Prime Minister from Congress, PV Narismha Rao. Many BJP supporters also get carried away with some asking for Bharat Ratna,I will try to present few facts on how PVNR was nothing but yet another failure from Congress.
I would first like to start on why Rao was chosen for the job in 1991.
Forever Prime Minister in waiting Shri Sharad Pawar has alleged in his book that Arjun Singh convinced Sonia Gandhi that Rao will be lame duck Prime Minister & Rao will make way for Arjun Singh to be Cong head
But Rao, didn’t step down frm the position of the Party President and this started an internal tussle between then senior Congress leaders & they all formed regional parties. There are two reasons for it, one they were against Rao & 2nd they wanted to get minority votes post 1992
Now lets looks at Rao’s role in Babri demolition, many say Rao was in favour of demolition & some Congress people allege that Rao could have saved the demolition by suspending the UP govt, some say he was happy with the demolition.
Its all lie, I will explain you in detail
PVNR was basically in checkmate situation in 1992, whr he had 2 options:
1- He could hav used military against Ram Bhakts, whr he feared military will not fire on ppl chanting Jay Shree Ram
2- Take strict action post demolition to pacify Mυzlims by taking action
He went for 2nd option and Post demolition PVNR suspended BJP government in HP, MP, Raj & UP
Now his plan B is activated where he is now trying hard to convince minority that demolition perpetrators shall be punished by law. But damaged had been done, Hindus went closer to BJP & minority moved away from Congress
Minority votes in UP went to Mulayam & in Bihar it went to Laloo which made the M+Y combination possible, this permanently weakened the Cong & hence senior Congress leaders started calling PVNR as BJP agent, Rao had no affinity towards Hindus, he became the scape goat for party
Senior Congress leaders tried to convince Sonia Gandhi for an imterna coup to occupy Rao’s chair, but that did not happen & hence they blamed PVNR for 1992 & moved away from Congress.
Many Congress leaders openly supported PVNR, saying he is a truly secular leader & hence his secular credentials should not be questioned. In short he was Congressi. Now we know why PVNR’s dead body was not brought to the Cong HQ, coz PVNR is now an enemy in the eyes of Minority
In an interview in 1993, PVNR said that he was committed to rebuild the mosque & it will fulfil it at any cost. He never said anything in favour of Ram Mandir. He said BJP can’t win this battle legally, he was confident that ruling will be in favour of Mosque. But 2019
PVNR said that Advani had assured him that Mosque will not be touched & he said Advani betrayed him. Now to get back at Advani, PVNR put false hawala charges on Advani in 1996, where Advani got acquitted in 1998
New BJP supporters aren’t aware of the torture which BJP leaders faced
After Barbie demolition, the 2nd most overrated claim is that PVNR is the original architect of the Nuclear Test & he convinced Vajpayee to complete the mission. This is just another lie, bear with me if this thread gets lil longer, but I will explain with details.
PVNR govt & his overrated economic reforms made them mercenary of US. Now conducting a nuclear test means they hav to face economic sanctions which then government was not willing to risk. This is literally a shame, how PM is going against national interest by not conducting Test
CIA meet Vajpayee in 1996 & they were convinced that Vajpayee was in favour of the Nuclear Test, hence in 1996 they stopped Vajpayee from getting power with the help of Congress. But finally Vajpayee ji became PM in 1998 & test was sanctioned despite CIA pressure tactics.
Vajpayee made it clear in 1998 that he is not afraid of economic sanctions, country like India can’t be threatened with sanctions. Now compare his approach with PVNR. US did put sanctions on us but that didn’t affect us at all, so Vajpayee’s stand was vindicated.
Now after 1998 Pokhran Test, US had to bring down Vajpayee govt at any cost. They assigned this task to the trusted international agent Sυbramanian Swαmy & look who attended the tea party in 1999, it was PVNR, which means he also played a part in bringing down Vajpayee govt in 99
Now lets look at PVNR’s involvement in scams. He was directly involved in Harshad Mehta scam & he received bribe. Jethmalani produced audio cassette of conversation to prove the charges against PVNR. We all know how Harshad Mehta died mysteriously & this scam was buried in coffin
PVNR was close to Godman Chandraswami who was well known international agent, well connected to international lobby including arms dealer. Chandraswami was arrested in 97 & his trusted friend Su Swαmy openly defended him. I will write separate thread to expose SuSu & Chandraswami
PVNR govt was saved in 1993 by cash for vote scandal, where they bought MP’s to cross vote in the favour of the govt. Chandrashekar’s faction voted for PVNR again fixer Swamy in action. Now you know why he has regards for Rao. Cong has so much love for democracy
PVNR’s Kashmir Policy was also utter failure, he never recognised Pandit exodus plus he wasn’t as ruthless on insurgency as todays Modi Gov is.
PVNR was often soft on the military action & often tried monkey balancing. Insurgency grew many folds under his regime, we paid price
PVNR’s Pakistan policy was also a big failure after Pak PM Ms. Bhutto declared open support to the insurgency in Kashmir, PVNR was still trying to talk to Pak using diplomatic channel. Pak had support of US & OIC where resolution was made in UN against India, we somehow saved face
Regarding the 1991 economics reforms & liberation from licence raj, I have already busted those claims in my Manmohan Singh thread. I have attached the link where you will find truth about 1991 reforms. I have attached all relevant sources to it
I have made enough points to highlight failures of PV Narismha Rao’s tenure as PM. Swαmy has demanded Bharat Ratna for Rao, as they both were partners in crime. Leaders like Vajpayee, Advani & Modi are often underrated by BJP supporters
