Jawaharlal Nehru almost worshipped Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin all the while being declared a ‘magnificent’ democrat by his sycophants albeit Stalin hated him so much that he always considered Nehru an ‘imperialist stooge’.
He appointed his matriculate sister Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit as our first Ambassador in Moscow. Stalin didn’t grant her appointment to present her credentials and Pandit had to return as ‘Ambassador-designate’ after completing her term. Nehru brazened it out in and outside Parliament.
Moscow didn’t even provide her minimum furniture which the Embassy had to import at an exorbitant cost from Stockholm. Why was Stalin so hostile to Nehru ? Answer is not very difficult to find.
Stalin was entirely aware of the instrument of ‘Transfer of Power Agreement’ signed by Nehru with Louis Mountbatten and the resultant ‘Dominion’ status of the country hence the allegation of Nehru being a British stooge.
