Congress' celebrations marking party's 131st Foundation Day on 28 December turned sour when Congress spokesperson Sanjay Nirupam criticised Jawaharlal Nehru and Sonia Gandhi. An article published by Congress' Mumbai unit in Congress Darshan, headed by Sanjay Nirupam, has praised Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in the December issue of the magazine paying tribute to mark Patel's death anniversary on 15 December.
The article also blames Nehru for the current situation in Kashmir, China and Tibet.
After the matter heated up, Sanjay Nirupam apologised for some "objectionable words" in the article.
Netizens and non-supporters of Congress lauded Sanjay Nirupam for the major goof up wherein some even went on say that it is a "gift to dynasty".
