    China stabbed at the back of his Greatgrandfather,Nehru in 1962.He coined-'Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai',signed a Panchseel agreement where both sides agreed not to attack each other but China attacked, occupied our land,Aksaichin,killed 3000 of our soldiers. Nehru even handed over Permanent Security Council seat to China which was offered to us. we are begging for it now.Now his Grandson's wife accepted donation from China for Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.His Greatgrandson even signed a MOU with China,the contents are not known to public.He also surreptiously visited the Chinese Embassy during Doklam stand off.What a pity?
