Along with the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, today is also the birth anniversary of the second Prime Minister of the country, Lal Bahadur Shastri. Born in a very simple house, Lal Bahadur Shastri rose to the top post of the country. Lal Bahadur Shastri set many examples in public life too. Lal Bahadur Shastri himself had resigned, taking responsibility for the train accident during his tenure. He had neither a luxurious house, nor a car, nor a bank balance. Even the children insisted on buying a car, so they took a loan. He would have left many more such examples for Indian politics but he died untimely in 1966 in Tashkent. In the entire life of Lal Bahadur Shastri there was no controversy.
But he died under very mysterious circumstances. Although the death of all the politicians of the country has come under the scanner, but the mystery of the death of former Prime Minister of India Lal Bahadur Shastri remains the same even after 55 years. Let us tell you that on January 11, 1966, Lal Bahadur Shastri died in Tashkent. What happened that night in Tashkent that suddenly Shastri died. It remains a topic of discussion in India even today. After that day many governments have changed in the country but no one has uncovered this mystery. However, the people of the opposition often kept demanding that the veil of mystery should be removed from this death. In fact, the Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri had gone to Tashkent, a city in the Soviet Union, for the Tashkent Agreement. There he signed a historic agreement with the President of Pakistan Ayub Khan on 10 January 1966. In which Lal Bahadur Shastri agreed to return the land won by India to Pakistan. After the agreement, Shastri ji went to sleep.After this the world got the news of his death at 2 pm. Many types of claims are made about the death of Shastri.
But no one knows what is the truth. In our country, if an actor dies under mysterious circumstances, then the whole country starts discussing. But this did not happen on the death of a Prime Minister. No one tells you, under what circumstances Lal Bahadur Shastri died. And why the truth of his death has not come in front of the country till date.After the death of Lal Bahadur Shastri, many questions arose. There was also talk of conspiracy behind his death. Especially when two important witnesses to Shastri’s death, his personal doctor RN Chugh and domestic help Ram Nath, died in road accidents under suspicious circumstances, this mystery deepened. In 1977, a decade after Lal Bahadur Shastri’s death, the government formed the Raj Narayan Committee to investigate his death. This committee did its investigation on all aspects, but till date the report of this committee is not known. When we turn the pages of history, we remember the Tashkent Agreement. Such an agreement, which took away the winning bet from India.
That agreement, which snatched even the most humble Prime Minister of the country, Lal Bahadur Shastri. A report on the second Prime Minister of the country, which will introduce you to the stories related to the life of Lal Bahadur Shastri. Also, will tell why Shastri ji is considered the most humble Prime Minister of the country. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of the country. The discussion about who would become the Prime Minister after his death was everywhere. Two weeks after the death of Pandit Nehru, the country’s former Home Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri was made the Prime Minister. Experts say that the ideology of Lal Bahadur Shastri and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was similar, but there was a lot of difference in the personality of both. It is said that Shastri spoke very slowly and was of a shy nature. Apart from this, his way of living was quite simple.
