Had Mahathma Gandhi Lived For Another 10 Years

After the Independence, Nehru gradually kept aside many of his colleagues in freedom fight, who disagreed with him. The only exception might be Babu Rajendra Prasad. Many senior leaders including Chakravarthy Rajagopalachari, B.R.Ambedkar, Prakasam Panthulu moved out of Congress within couple of years after the Independence. Leaders like Shyam Prasad Mukherjee, moved out of the interim government formed by Nehru. Sardar Vallabai Patel died within 3 years after the Independence. Almost everyone who disagreed with Nehru either moved out of Congress, his government, or died soon after the Independence. The entire country is governed how Nehru wanted it.

When the British granted the Independence, Congress gradually started keeping Mahathma Gandhi away from the main activities. Eventhough, the entire government came down, when he fasted to return the money to Pakistan, apart from that, Congress and Nehru always did what they wanted. Mahathma Gandhi wanted to close Congress, since it served it's purpose. There were many other policies of Gandhi which did not make sense to Nehru and many other leaders of Congress. They have not followed any of Gandhi's advises after the Independence was declared.

If Gandhi had lived for 10 more years, Nehru would have definitely moved him out of Congress, or Gandhi himself moved out of Congress. Had Gandhi moved out of Congress in that way, he would not have become Father of Nation. He would have been just another freedom fighter like everyone else.

Nathuram Godse is the one who has given more fame to Gandhi than anybody else.
