Indira as PM was a tragic mistake

Indira as PM was a tragic mistake:

Ram Jethmalani holds views which appear extreme to many has uncharacteristically analysed the harmful effects of  Indira Gandhi's ascendance as PM of India. One may quarrel with Jethmalani's assertion that Lal Bahadur Shastri was the best PM of India, but by and large his analysis is balanced. The greatest disservice that Indira Gandhi did to India was that she wrecked all institutions of governance and the constitution . Before her becoming PM the Indian political system operated on the course set by the Constitution of India, she began to short-circuit the constitution and ethical considerations. All the malaise afflicting the Indian political system could be traced back to her rule.

In stead of being a statesman, Mrs Gandhi was out and out a politician. She thought of the moment, not posterity. In my early days I was an admirer of her real politik, but in foreign affairs also she proved a disaster as she never cared for the credibility of India. Take the case of Sikkim's merger, the role of Mukti Bahini in the then East Pakistan. If you go through Henry Kissingr's White House Years, you will get an idea of the way outsiders looked at her.
