The problem with the Congress

The Commissionerate police on Monday began an investigation into an alleged derogatory remark against former Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru in the visitors’ book of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Birthplace Museum (NBM) in Cuttack.

The police moved in after the Cuttack unit of Congress lodged a complaint against one Pramod Dey and his wife Lopamudra Dey of Bhubaneswar. Pramod, during his visit to the museum, while appreciating Bose’s contribution in India’s independence, had reportedly used derogatory language against India’s first Prime Minister.

Thus, a news story. Memo: A party with an extraordinarily thin skin and an over-reliance on one or two historical totems should never campaign for freedom of speech — they do those who really believe in FoE a disservice.
