Netaji's grandnephew compares Nehru to Hitler: "Hitler never betrayed nation"
In a series of tweets, Subhash Chandra Bose's grand nephew and BJP Bengal leader Chandra Kumar Bose compared India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to German dictator Adolf Hitler. Praising Hitler, Bose wrote that unlike Nehru, the Nazi leader "never betrayed his nation," while India's first PM only cared about "sitting on the throne." Bose's remarks have snowballed into a controversy on social media.
Well Hitler was a nationalist who's intention was to conquer Europe- but he never betrayed his nation. Nehru wanted to sit on the throne without fighting- but sucking up to the British. In short Nehru betrayed his nation .— Chandra Kumar Bose (@Chandrabosebjp) April 21, 2018
I'm not supporting Hitler-of course he was a devil- but he was not fraudulent like Nehru - who in the guise of being a nationalist was actually a British lackey.TheBritish torturedkilled millions of Indians over a period of 200 years-but #Nehru wineddined with them!— Chandra Kumar Bose (@Chandrabosebjp) April 21, 2018
In the recent past, Chandra Kumar Bose has been quite vocal about his dislike for the Congress. He praised BJP and said the party was in alignment with Netaji's ideologies and accused Congress of erasing his history. "Netaji believed in modern science, he believed in development, his views were inclusive, and all these ideas are today with the BJP," he had said.
