Gandhiji’s Last Letter To Jawaharlal Nehru: Jairam Ramesh Shares Picture
New Delhi: As the country remembered Jawaharlal Nehru on his 131st birth anniversary on November 14, former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh shared a picture of Mahatma Gandhi’s last letter to independent India’s first Prime Minister.
“Unpublicised, Nehru hadn’t taken food for a day or two as a reaction to communal tensions in Delhi. Somehow the Mahatma got to know… and advised (Nehru) to put an end to the ‘fast’,” Ramesh tweeted.
Gandhi’s last letter to Nehru — 18 Jan 1948.
