Lal Bahadur Shastri could have become India's first economic reformer
Lal Bahadur Shastri got an unexpected mention at the recent conclave of the Bharatiya Janata Party, when Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi praised the second prime minister of India in his speech. Shastri has been luckier than P.V. Narasimha Rao, who has been airbrushed out of history by the Congress commissars. However, he is not the first Congress leader of yore to be embraced by the opposition after being ignored by his own party. L.K. Advani had earlier tried to identify himself with Vallabhbhai Patel.
