Kashmir Problem : Nehru and Patel


Jammu and Kashmir Problem has become a great issue in today’s Politics. But it had been solved if Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel had turned down the decision of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru. In the very begining Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi had told Sardar Patel ” Sardar only you can integrate India, which has a lots of diversity.” Patel played a game with all princely states and offered every possible thing to include in India. But Junagarh, Hydrabad and Kashmir was still in indecisive postion. Ruler of Junagarh wanted to go with Pakistan as Shah Nawaz was trying his best. But Military march and tactis of Patel compelled to be part of India. Again Hydrabad became matter of bargain as Pakistan said keep Hydrabad and give Kashmir. But loosing of Hydrabad means Independence of India became under threat. Mount bettan and Nehru refused to take any military action. But as acting PM Patel ordered for Military March. Patel was also thinking same thing for Kashmir but Nehru was much annoyed and put the matter before UN.
