Gandhiji's assassin Godse also wanted to kill 'Sardar' Patel - read here

The assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation, was carried out by Nathuram Godse, a fundamentalist ideologue. It is Godse who is revered by the current Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leadership. And also believes in the ideal. Provocative statements against Mahatma Gandhi are also constantly coming to light. So-called patriotic activists have been accusing Mahatma Gandhi of leaning towards Pakistan at the time of partition and providing aid to Pakistan and Rs 51 crore. Which was anti-country.

Playing big politics in the name of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, today's leaders may have forgotten that Gandhi's assassin Godse also wanted to get rid of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. A senior journalist has made such a shocking revelation in his blog. Not only this, a lot has been written about the motive and politics behind the conspiracy to assassinate Sardar Patel. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was also in Nathuram Godse's hit list.

It may be mentioned that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was fatally attacked in Vadodara and Bhavnagar. These attacks were as deadly as the attacks on Gandhiji.a

Sardar Patel, a disciple of Mahatma Gandhi, was attacked in Mandvi on his procession in Vadodara in 1938 while attending a conference in Bhadran as the chairman of the Vadodara State Prajamandal. A similar attack was planned in Bhavnagar in May 1939 with the intention of killing Vallabhbhai, but in an attack near the Nagina Mosque, two Navaniyas were beaten to death. Nanabhai Bhatt was also seriously injured.

Nathuram Godse was sentenced to death on November 8, 1949 for Gandhiji's assassination. Mathuram was hanged on November 19, 1949 in Ambala Central Jail. This day is celebrated as Sun Day by the present so-called Rashtra Bhakts. Gopal Godse, the elder brother of Nathuram Godse, a co-accused in the attack, was also jailed for conspiracy.

Gopal Godse had written a letter to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel after his release from jail. In which Gopal Godse said, Patel no longer asks me, ignores me. In the background of all this, it is also suspected that Sardar Patel had a hand in the assassination of Gandhi. But these sentences are tantamount to doing injustice to Patel.

In addition, Gopal Godse wrote that Patel was to resign before Gandhiji was assassinated. But if Gandhiji had not been assassinated, the news of Sardar Patel's resignation would have been read in a couple of days.

In fact, the campaign to hold Sardar Patel responsible for Gandhiji's assassination was launched by Jayaprakash Narayan and communist leaders. Such allegations can be said to be very shocking as Sardar Patel was always devoted to the Mahatma.
