Noted social activist and president of All India Secular Forum Ram Puniyani Monday termed as false and a blatant lie Narendra Modi's claim that then Prime Minister of India Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru did not attend the funeral of Sardar Patel.

"Morarji Desai in his Autobiography, Vol 1, Page 271, para 2, writes that the President of India Babu Rajendra Prasad and the Prime Minister of India Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru attended the funeral of Sardar Patel, which was held in Mumbai", he said in a statement sent to

In an interview to Dainik Bhaskar published Oct 26 Narendra Modi criticized country's first PM Jawaharlal Nehru for not attending the funeral procession of the then home minister of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

"One knows Modi has been resorting to the motivated propaganda about so many things to build up his image. Many of his claims of development of Gujarat are also false", he said.

"One knows that it was Sardar Patel who said that it is due to the 'Hate spread by RSS, Modi's parent organization, that we had to lose the Father of our Nation'. Now this statement of his about Nehru is again a blatant lie", he added.

"Such falsehoods have been the basis on which Modi is building his image amongst a section of society. We condemn this statement of his and demand and apology from Modi for this falsehood being spoken by him", he said.

Interestingly, Social activist Medha Patkar also attacked Narendra Modi on Monday for "illegally" pursuing his agenda of raising the height of the Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP) by making false claims.

"I have not seen a bigger liar than Modi. He has again started to play the SSP card despite knowing that the project has failed to live up to the tall political claims and paper promises. Fully knowing that it will affect 2.5 lakh people, he is illegally pushing to clear the final height of the dam," Patkar told mediapersons here.
