P Shivshankar her lawyer told Outlook that Indira had no knowledge of Constitution. To summarize, Indira furthered creation of democratic dictatorship, first kicked off by her father Nehru. Indira never trusted anyone but her family only and so made Sanjay Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi heroes without any deed during her lifetime. The leadership offered by her only alienated people with faith native to this nation APART which was for he first time during entire history of our nation from start to end. To summarize, her leadership plunged India into depths of darkness. For example, her green revolution theory, an extremely weak and baseless theory, so praised by Congressis is now turning to be a bane of farmers as the soil loses fertility and organic farming takes roots which anyways had roots in India from start.

There were other ways to flosh out the men who seized the golden temple as many felt in the aftermath of the military action. Jail singh was the president at that time.Liberation of bangladesh was an accomplishment of the armed forces, period.
