The Congress party on Wednesday said though the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) was renamed by the government as Prime Ministers’ Museum and Library (PMML) Society, the contributions and legacy of first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru will remain undiminished as a testament to his enduring impact and influence on the nation and its people.
AICC General Secretary in-charge of communication Jairam Ramesh in a statement on Wednesday said “From today, the prestigious institution has got a new name. The world-famous Nehru Memorial Museum and Library – NMML has now become the Prime Ministers’ Museum and Library ( PMML) Society.”
He attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this matter and said, “PM Modi seems full of fear, inferiority complex and insecurity, especially when it comes to our first and longest serving Prime Minister. Their sole agenda is to falsify, defame, distort and destroy Nehru and the Nehruvian legacy.
They have removed ‘N’ and replaced it with ‘P’. This ‘P’ actually stands for pettiness and peevish irritation.”
Mr. Ramesh said, “But he can never belittle Nehru’s immense contribution to the freedom movement and his great achievements in laying the democratic, secular, scientific and liberal foundations of the Indian nation-state.
No matter how much Mr Modi and those who beat the drums for him keep attacking these achievements.
Despite the continuing attacks, Jawaharlal Nehru’s legacy will live on before the world and continue to inspire generations to come.”
